Default Re: Drum Tips

Volume is important. Not loudness, not softness; volume. There is a time to be loud, a time to be soft, a time to be very loud, and everything in between. Some drummers consistently play too loudly - that's the stereotype of drummers in general. Some, though, play too softly. Open up your ears and listen to the others playing around you. Listen to the balance between the drums and the rest of the band on recordings. Then, record your band when you play - judge how you are balancing.
