One of my biggest frustrations is listening back to a recording (live or studio) and hearing myself play something that I've been playing for years....but it sounds sloppy. Arrrrgh!!
How could something so seemingly easy and familiar compromise my entire performance?
Well, it comes down to one thing: Mindset.
If I don't make a conscience effort to play every note with conviction and confidence, I don't deserve to sound the way I desire. And that's what I want you to avoid! My goal is for you to sound the way you desire-without compromise!
Todays lesson is on the classic, Bucket o' Fish Fill. This is a timeless fill that has been used for decades and will continue.
However, as popular as it is, it's very easy to play sloppy! If we're not careful we too can get in that compromising mindset and think we're just crushing it...when we're not.
This lesson covers the common pitfalls us drummers face when trying to execute this fill. By focusing on just a couple techniques, you will OWN the Bucket o' Fish and elevate the awareness for the rest of your playing.
