creativity & messing up the right way

It is not easy to become a good drummer. Try to play the exercises well, becoming faster, integrate more and more techniques, play more and more variations, get better control over the muscles. And let’s not forget steadyness and volume control…

But creativity is a difficult quality, one that we can hardly train specifically. Taking risks, experimenting and making mistakes is the best route for this.

To show you how I do it… I have taken 2 chapters from Book of Fills (3.1 and 3.3), chosen a feel (even/triplet/bluesrock) and started to jam… Watch some of these 4 video’s & I hope you get inspired to do the same!
