    Life's too short to play the same solo twice. Improvise!

    I was actually surprised it sounded as good as it did. That’s kinda how I play....at the end of the fourth set and about 12 beers. I just kinda “drag” the sticks around the kit and hope for the best

    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

    French grip is risky....................his roll sounds (fairly) decent but there is no power behind it.
    The only thing worse than his technique is his batter head...................

    I have no doubt that your technique did not cause the broken china, BUT, your technique on turning drumsticks into sawdust needs a little working on.

    Oh yeah I’ve seen that clown on YouTube before. That’s not french grip. I use french grip for everything and you don’t hold the stick by the tips of your fingers. Last time I did a drum roll was in highschool band and I was the king of the snare! Good times.
