Yeah man. A lot of really good solid advice. Appreciate your thoughts…If I may ask, what was the price for the Drumeo course? The swivel technique sounds like a Jo Jo Mayer kind of thing? But that’s great you feel like your improving, that’s what it’s all about! I’ll check out that app you mentioned. I never heard of it! Interesting title, Lol! Your right on about time.Hey man, you have a ton of good advice in the previous posts. If there’s anything I can add, been playing same amount of time as you. Here’s what has really helped.
Todd Sucherman has a course on Drumeo call Rock Drumming Masterclass, and one of the exercises is going through literally every variation possible of kick drum patterns. I did this daily for months and it was worth the price of the course alone.
Another thing, as mentioned, was learning the swivel method. It’s one of those things where once you’ve practiced it enough, your leg will just throw a swivel in here or there and you don’t even think about it. It just happens.
Lastly, download an app like “Amazing Slow Downer” or my new favorite, “Moises.ai” and slow down a song that you want to play. Increase 1-2 bpm every so often to where you can’t even tell. Pretty soon you’re playing a song at 100%. “My Hero” by Foo Fighters was excellent for this.
I’ve found that at the end of the day, for me, the answer always seems to be “more time.”
You just need to spend more and more time on it.
Totally agree! Thanks.
