    A lot of time, what holds drummers up is thinking that they have to play difficult fills but a drum solo can still sound unique and interesting with just a few simple beats placed here and there creatively. GF hit the nail on the head with relaxing and not playing more than what you know.

    Another idea is to warm up real good before the performance. This always helps me. Get a practice pad out and go through some sticking exercises. This will limber you up real good and help your confidence.

    Good luck!

    Everyone loves FREE... like this free drum forum. But like your car and even your drums, they require upkeep and maintenance and that requires money.

    Will you consider Shopping at Drum Bum to help support this forum?

    Or make a donation here.



    I know from working with Drum Bum through the years, that this forum is costly to run. It requires server fees, hosting, ongoing moderation, advertising, software upgrades, security certificates and IT work when it breaks. All in addition to the expenses that come from running a business. These costs are offset (hopefully) by members that click through to Drum Bum to make a purchase now and then, if not make a contribution to help keep it running.

    On behalf of Drum Bum, thank you for your consideration.

    Totally, totally true. Play what you know in public, play what you don't know in practice.

    Play some quads with the kick and toms, and chuck in a few stick twirls (if you can't twirl your sticks then don't) then you've won the audience

    Just remember, don't try to play anything you can't, and have fun!
