Concepts – Are You Playing the Drums?

This month’s quote represents a classic sentiment that seasoned drummers often feel necessary to share with younger players. By this stage in my career, I’ve witnessed many occasions when it would have been useful to repeat—at a clinic, for instance, when the drummer just couldn’t do the gig on a 22" bass drum because his standard setup had a 20"; or at a gig where an unsteady player blamed failures in the groove on a slipping hi-hat pedal.
