Drum lesson tips, Ideas, Stories and Free lessons
A young musician goes to an audition. She is keen, she has practiced, mastered her time, learned the repertoire, paid her dues. She is ready she thinks.
The band members quiz her." Can you play 32nd note paradiddles with your feet?"
She eagerly responds, "Of course, now do I have the gig?"
"Why, I actually won a drum contest doing that."
"That's why we fired the last drummer. Guy put them everywhere"
Moral of the story. Play the song. We drummers are accompanists. Remember Buddy Rich had to start his own band.
