    Sitting down on the kit and jamming to a song is a beautiful thing, but we sometimes take for granted just how much of a safety blanket the music can be. In this episode Eddy and I discuss ways to get comfortable "speaking" on the kit without music. Evolving  your drumming from beats and fills to having a fluid sense of flow on the kit. As you'll hear from both of us, it's much easier said than done!

    This past week I gave 4 clinics in 4 different states. Each clinic was a slight evolution from the night before. It wasn't until the 4th and final night that the true clinic emerged and I had clarity on what I wanted to do at the UK Drum Show. In this episode Eddy and  will discuss that process, as well as answer a few questions from our amazing Patrons.

    Enjoy - Mike & Eddy

    This phrase can take shape in multiple ways and both Eddy and I have experienced that bad wolf far too many times. Luckily we have spent our careers trying to kick it's ass, so in this episode we will walk you through the steps we take to ensure that the GOOD WOLF always comes out on top!

Excellent

These are awesome podcasts. The chemistry between Mike & Eddy is palpable. The humour is brilliant and the content hits the nail right on the head, no matter what level of drumming your are at! The information also crosses well to others in music and in life. If this was only in the UK it would be the M&S of drum/life podcasts. Well done guys.

First Class Podcast 🙌

You guys are smashing it! This is my go to podcast when travelling. I’ve played drums since the age of 11 (now 44!) however in the last 10 years it’s taken a backseat due to work and family life. Listening to you guys is helping me realise why I fell in love with the drums all those years ago. I now have the spark again! Keep doing what you do 💪🏻
