the only way you could possibly have a worse tom angle is if it was suspended upside down from the ceiling. but hey, thats pretty bad you might consider it.

Because you are not allowing your wrists and fingers to operate correctly and are setting yourself up for some serious health problems such as tendonitis.
I would cut that angle in half to about 45 degrees. Don't flatten it completely as it will feel completely foreign. Just ease into it.

You've got 2 years of bad habits to break. Start fixing that like right now.

Agreed on the tom fella. If you want to see angles, check the different pics in the kit pics section on here.

No one said your playing was "bad". We are concerned about the DAMAGE you are going to bring on yourself by playing that way.

Really, go back and read where ANYONE said "you suck". You have about 200 years of collective experience telling you the same thing!!

You play good for as much time you have in on the instrument. You gave us a video to see your style, and we all say the same thing. We are only trying to help.

I would have sent a google link but I'm a little reticent to do so. Some people might have a problem with that. ;)

What's with that 90 degree angle on the tom? Flatten that thing out!
if hes comfortable with a 90 degree tom let him have it that way
You know what? Fine. Have it like that. Go on, fuck up your wrists. After all they're not mine.

Let's hear what you have to offer him in bettering his playing.

If you post a video you have to be open to people giving you advice, that's why you posted it right? No one has put your playing down or you personally. As far as playing goes your doing good, if I were you I would incorporate some different fills in there. It's very easy to do fills all high to low or left to right. I'm still trying to get out of doing that myself. But don't take stuff personally man, it's just drummers being drummers right? :p



P.S. Thanks Shogun
