Don't get me wrong, Steve.... I LOVE speed...

April 29, 2021 10:47AM
I am constantly watching today's drummer exhibit their prowess and speed on Youtube videos... and I'd give dang near anything to be able to do that. But I can't.... so my point was not that I have found something I like 'better'... just different and that can still be a challenge. I'd much prefer to be competent doing both.

Tricks - you bet... but should we divulge that here on the Pub? laughing smiley I mean, you don't see magician's giving away their magic secrets. laughing smiley

I can do double-stroke rolls down the kit that to the untrained ear will probably sound much like the single-stroke runs the fastest drummers use a LOT these days. But it's not the same, and I can tell. frowning smiley Not that there isn't a place for double-stroke rolls, there certainly is.

Drives me crazy with envy that today most of the top drummers can do lightspeed paradiddles faster with their feet than I can do with my hands. laughing smiley

Yup, I'll be ready.... can't help but be.... we are playing basically the same songs today that we started with back in the mid-90's. There isn't a song we play that I can't drum too while sipping a coke, talking to someone, taking a hit of vocal-eze, tuning a drum, and reading this website at the same time. laughing smiley
