Those of you familiar with the channel know that sometimes I deconstruct Other People's playing and show you how to get inside the head of, say, Marcus Gilmore or Robert McNamara (shout outs, Jacob Mann - Mad Subliminal).
But in this lesson, I'm showing you how to practice like...Me!
One of the biggest killers I face every day is Hedonic Adaptation. The drum equivalent of doing the saaaaaame workout with the same weights day-after-day. After a while, your progress slows. It's the same with time keeping. We stop getting better because we stop hearing ourselves as we really sound. We get Used To Sucking.
In this lesson, I show you a simple hack to splash some proverbial cold water on your face, and tease out some flaws in even the most basic swing beats.
As promised, transcriptions are available here.
