OK, I may be a little harsh but you ask for it. LOL!!

First I'll say it looks like you have done a lot of practice especially with that song. You were very tight and did a good job.

At this point I would like you to start lighting up on beating the drums and trying to tear things up. I can tell you have some technical experience, you have the speed but you need to work on letting the stick do the work you are working too hard.

Drum heads and cymbals should never break. The big name guys have the money, they can afford it and sometimes do it for show. I don't see any reason to break good equipment.

Work on stick bounce and turn up the mic's if it needs to be loud.

Hope this helps,

sherm

sounded really good. nothing wrong with being a heavy hitter. everyone has there own styles of play. not everyone plays a 7A drumstick, single ply heads, or thin crashes. i'm a bit baffled by the comment above, but it's an opinion. loved the video thanks.

Odd ...

I'm not baffled by Sherm's remarks at all. Sherm was fair and supplied credible, balanced criticism. The poster sought opinions; Sherm obliged.

Sherm mentioned 'bashing.' The playing came across to me the same way. My taste is way on the other side of the spectrum, though. I admit, that's where my bias rests - there in a much milder acoustic music setting. I tend to think of drums and drum playing as being more 'musical' when there is thoughtful stage balance.

I was distracted after I noticed the broken cymbal.

I'll grant that the player was note-perfect covering the song.
