When you think of some of the greatest drumming performances you’ve ever seen, do you recall the drummer struggling, being tense, or looking scared to death that they are going to make a mistake, no. The reason is simple. Chances are they performed enough repetitions to be able to perform the task without any of those problems. Am I saying they are not nervous? Not at all, even the most seasoned player gets nervous before they perform. In fact, it’s that bit of adrenaline rush that can keep you on your toes, ensuring you don’t make mistakes. Not to mention those great drummers didn’t just pick up a pair of sticks yesterday. Many of them have spent a lifetime perfecting their craft.
