“In learning chops & playing you always want it to feel good.
Don’t always think I have to know this lick verbatim.”
"You have to feel it - playing drums and being a musician, combine the two.
Turn your drumming into instead of ‘I'm just a drummer,’ ‘I'm a musician.’
"It's not a book theory. it's not a rudiment.
It's all about the placement and how you play it."
"Stop being scared. You're always scared to tighten the snare drum.
You want that pop? Take it up."
"Playing drums, you're the time-keeper.
It is so important to be able to play and keep time and not lose the 1."
