Tips for: Chops and Speed.

Hush, if you're gonna come in here and think this is pointless. :lol: :lol:

This is merely for the drummer looking to improve overall speed and whatnot, or the up and coming metal drummer looking to kick his blasts and double bass into high gear.

I'd like to add to this that all metal drummer should be practicing alot of single stroke for long periods of time. set a metronome and just play steady single for 5 minutes at a time. you dont have to do it too fast, just as fast as is comfortable, then do the same with your feet. this excersize is as much about keeping control over long periods of time then it is about endurence

I highly recommend acquiring a practice kit too

I made this for less then $75, and all the pads are triggered so I can use them with my DM5 and Drumometer:

I got one recommendation: stick control by george lawrence stone. practice with your feet. or practice the rhythms with your hands over a steady 16th feel with your feet. or break up between hands and feet as you see fit. priceless.

I already know you're better than me so no matter what, it'll be a learning experience.
