I definitely said “round Tuesday” which is not a thing BUUUT - guess what it’s #techniquetuesday !! If you’ve been following me, I’ve been throwing out simple exercises to become a more ambidextrous drummer. Today - we add accents. Accents always force you to understand completely where you are in a phrase and you cannot guess your way through it. What better way to good at it than flipping the sticking EVERY TIME?? This is easy to understand but can be difficult to put into practice, especially in the heat of the moment with other musicians and it’s on you to keep the train organized and moving 😳 - it’s one of the best rewards of being a drummer when done successfully though.
Pumped to tell ya’ll I’ll be ripping drums for @zonbiapocalypse‘ return show on Nov 9th with legends @vio_lence_band at @bkbazaar. Took some video at our first rehearsal on Sun, rough around the edges of course but overall feeling realllly good. This is “The Dead In The Queue” off the first EP (swipe left), but you gotta peep the new album (swipe left again)...brutal, v fast, and not a little insane.
