I've been watching the rdavidr youtube channel a lot lately and thought I'd share one of his videos with you. I would highly recommend checking his other videos out!
The bass drum part had me laughing on the floor.
I've had the migrating bass before. Very frustrating. Especially when it also pushes my kick drum mic with it. I can pull the drum back between songs, but I need someone else to put the mic back in place.
"Too many crappy used drum stuff to list"
Play the SONG......not the DRUMS!!!
"I think that feeling is a lot more important than technique. It's all very well doing a triple paradiddle - but who's going to know you've done it? If you play technically you sound like everybody else. It's being original that counts." ~ John Bonham
I like his videos and his playing. I look forward to what he gets up too on YT. Fun to watch.

He does a lot of cool stuff and sometimes funny.
I enjoy his channel a LOT. He has a great attitude and legitimately fantastic tips. The split-the-felt idea is one I absolutely can't believe I've never thought of.

100 years ago when I was first starting out, I found a "carpenter's closet" at a theater where we were playing a gig.
I got a 1-foot piece of scrap 2X4 and nailed it down to the stage in front of my bass reso hoop...............most stable bass drum anyone ever played.
After the gig I pulled the scrap wood up with the claw hammer and put it back where it belonged..............nobody was the wiser.
