Myth busting… pet peeves? Three grumpy old guys sitting around shaking their fists at the clouds?
This was an episode in the works for a long time. A lot of fun.
Enjoy.

Myth or reality…?

– Pocket vs Chops. Mutually exclusive?
– You play better when you’re drunk.
– If you can’t play… you teach.
– What’s the best practice method/theory!?
– If you stay on the click you are playing in time.
Tempo… eeeish
– Play faster to increase the intensity. Slower to relax.
– ‘We play faster to get the dance floor happening!’
– Having a music degree means you are a better player.
– Qualifications on the drums.
– Drummers who play for big bands are immediately awesome.
– Lars is a s**t drummer.
– Practice vs Playing.
– Everyone who does a music degree sounds the same.
– You can get good by watching YouTube videos.
– How long will it take me to get good?
– Rudiments…
– Best sticks, best pedals, best cymbals, best drums…
– Searching for the gear that will solve a problem with your drumming.
– How to achieve (insert famous drummers) drum sound.
– It’s just a crappy covers gig.
– Some music is better than other music.
– Feel and groove… you either have it or you don’t.
Talent.
