Getting back into drums

This podcast is great! I listened to the one on motivation and making it a habit. Made a lot of sense to me! Thank you for that and keep up the awesome podcasts!

Very informative and inspirational

Nick has on some of the best known and unknown (that you should know) drummers and musicians in the industry on his show. I have listened to most of his episodes over the years, and it’s hard to remember a time I didn’t come away from a listen that I didn’t learn something useful. Not just drumming but many other aspects of being a musician. The mental part, the financial, the social marketing... Nick thankfully touches on all of it with great guests and interviews. To make a comparison if you’ve never listened... if Mike and Mike @ the Modern Drummer podcast are the JRE(size) / TFATK(style) podcast of the drum world, Nick’s Drummer’s Resource is comparable to Tim Ferris’s podcast...(interviewing the best at what they do and picking their brain to find out how everyone else can benefit). If you’re serious about improving all parts of your drumming and everything that surrounds a career in music, I’d seriously recommend a listen.
