The one thing all drummers need 馃挭

  • As rock drummers, WE are the catalyst馃挜
    But, what does that really mean? Well, in order to get toes tapping and hips swinging in the crowd, you鈥檒l need a strong foundation on the bass drum that matches the power of the back beat. There鈥檚 nothing coy or shy about it. It鈥檚 all about confidence 馃挭
    Do you feel confident when you鈥檙e drumming? 馃挰

      @Marc Wesley thanks a lot, Marc, sir. 馃檹

      @ MarkIssacM, dude, you got this鈥.here鈥檚 a simple way I dealt with lack of confidence, that started very early as a child, now I鈥檓 63, retired licensed A&P airplane and helicopter mechanic and had a great career as a mechanic for nearly 40 yrs鈥.
      ya need self confidence to keep people alive鈥
      My simple technique鈥. Be proud of your self鈥..even the smallest daily, hourly, minute鈥.accomplishments, don鈥檛 wait for someone else to recognize or critique what you鈥檝e done, YOU鈥ecognize what you鈥檝e done鈥.if it鈥檚 good鈥.be proud鈥.if it鈥檚 bad鈥.fix it鈥.and learn from it, never stop self evaluating, it keeps your ego 鈥渋n check鈥濃.remember it鈥檚 those little proud things that make a strong foundation and build confidence, by being proud of even your smallest and perhaps silliest things, every little bit helps.
      Check out the you tube video of Admiral McCraven giving a college commencement motivational speech鈥.very true and inspiring鈥.be strong, be positive and be most of all, humble and thankful.

    Yes we are!! Such a great feeling to control the entire dance floor while confidently playing the simplest beat. No one knows the true power of the drummer like drummers!

      Rhythm player do as well know the power. Rhythm section the most important. Drums, bass and Rhythm guitar. Lead puts some flavour on top

    I like how he vocalized the drums like he didn鈥檛 have a giant kit in front of him lol that being said, I don鈥檛 disagree with a word he said.

    Not just in rock. But in all music. To make it believable. Are to confidently get across the emotion that you are projecting. You must play it with confidence.

    im a drummer in a band with me and my friends, im the least confident, and we play alternative rock style music, the most confident is definitely the singer(no name for obvious reasons)

    Drummers hold the band together.
    Drummers are the foundation -grounding & stabilizing force.
    They're usually the nicest people too not like the ego-diva singers & guitar slingers.

    Couldn't have said it better myself Todd. You don't have to be great, you just need confidence. You can simplify or rearrange any beat to fit your skill, so there is no excuse for holding back in rock. Play what you know, and know what you play

    Misread this as all drummers need to wear shorts. To be fair, I always play in shorts.

    that's right. a good DJ has a similar responsibility. NOT the button pusher DJ.. who is akin to a button pusher drummer (AKAI)

      Fleetwood kept a continuous beat with the dangling balls he wore around his neck an over the shoulders to bang together in front of him.Thats confidence,part of why he is great.

    Lost me in the first 10 seconds. The BASS PLAYER makes the people dance, keeps the pulse of the song and is both the rhythmic and melodic root of the whole ensemble. #FightMe 馃槀馃槀馃槀 (it鈥檚 true tho鈥.)

      Sorry, the bassist is the wall of the building, the drummer is the foundation. No wall stands w/o the foundation, and the roof (all other instruments) is nowhere, man.
