When Todd Sucherman was in our studio for the making of the Rock Drumming Masterclass, we asked him to come up with three common myths among drummers (which especially apply to rock music). Todd will discuss myths regarding how to strike the drums and cymbals, the makeup of your own drum kit, and what skills you actually need (and which ones you don’t need to obsess over) to proficiently play rock music.
What are some other myths that you want to be dispelled among drummers?
