    Re: Playing bad on someone else's drum kit

    Great points as usual guys. The biggest issue i have on an unfamiliar set is always the bass drum pedal.
    Its impossible for me to get in fast kicks on another persons set.

    Tommy is a good drummer and has a marching band background. I love the intro to " bastard" on shout at the devil. The guy has some good chops. He actually seems like a nice guy.
