But drumming isn’t easy, and it takes a fair amount of dedication to the craft as well as inherent skill to succeed at. With that in mind read on for some ways you can improve your live performance.
You have to be fit
Drumming is a wholly physical activity. You have to be at the top of your game to really bang those cans. So make sure of that you take care of your body as well as your kit. That means hardcore arm workouts with heavy weights like the one at livestrong.com.Something that are also useful for if you want to go sleeveless or shirtless on stage.
It doesn’t hurt to do a bit of cardio either. As all that sitting down behind the kit and revelry on tour can encourage the beginning of a beer belly. So hit the gym or go for a run once in awhile, your heart with thank you for it too.
