So my senior friends wanted to do one thing before they graduated…

I’ve watched this like 12 times I can’t stop

Hahahahahaha

Anybody out there like metal? DO WE HAVE ANY METAL DRUMMERS IN THE HOUSE?? *raises hand* 

Just checking because I saw Mastodon and Gojira last night and let me tell you, IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHO BRANN DAILOR OR MARIO DUPLANTIER IS, YOU’RE WRONG AND NEED TO CHANGE THAT RIGHT NOW.

Both have some serious chops, and Mario likes to put a lot of cool rudimental things in his playing. Definitely check out their stuff and if you need suggestions for which tunes to listen to, don’t hesitate to ask! :)

So I recently had tryouts and made 4th bass (after two years of being guitarist in drumline) and the bass music is pretty difficult for a highschool line, and my arms were extremely sore after tryouts which was pretty much just eights and simple splitting and I was curios if you thought this is a chops thing that will fix itself or if there's something I should do to ease pain

Make sure you’re doing the correct technique. I wasn’t playing with good technique and I got tendonitis from it. If you’re in pain, stop and ice after playing, DO NOT PLAY THROUGH THE PAIN. Use heat before playing. Try anti inflammitories. Definitely practice technique and chops, that should help.

Once you are using correct technique PLAY THROUGH THE PAIN. Usually the pain is just your muscles being worked hard than they are conditioned for, like a runner whose legs hurt when he runs farther or faster than he has before. It’s not fun, and I definitely don’t recommend playing through weird pains in weird places, but if it’s just muscle fatigue, playing through it will build your chops and enforce correct technique. Playing through muscle soreness and practicing good technique brought me from literally no chops or technique to making tenors in the best drumline in my state.

You are correct! I kind of meant if it’s weird pain, don’t play through it but I guess I didn’t really say that lol. You should be able to tell muscle fatigue from something else though. I wish I knew the difference before I got tendonitis :/ I’m just now trying to build me chops back up
