First time at the drums for about a month now :| Shoulder/arm thing not improving at the moment but I have some gigs coming up which I can't get out of so I want to test the state of play now I have some pre-playing exercises to try. Don't know which is worse: the awful shoulders or the tendonitis it's caused in my arms!

Like Woxey's upload, this is a jam through too! Decided to match the dark foreboding riff with some dark foreboding drums. i.e. hit the toms a lot and feed them to the reverb. Quite difficult to keep the same pattern going!

Using Spaun kit and Ludwig snare.


No reverb on the HD mix.

funny thing, I got a bad neck crank recently, just going away now after a few days...realized it was caused from turning my head to look at my computer while playing the drums! Well I moved it in front of me....

Funny you should say that, I do exactly the same except I don't know where I can put the computer in front of me. So I'm still stuck with it off to my left.

yes, left side neck crank! My set is small (electronic) so I just jammed the stand in the front...

Thanks, Wade. The specialist can't help me until I get an MRI so I'm at the mercy of when I can get that appointment at the moment. So I'm at the mercy of the NHS at the moment :(

But I have some exercises to alleviate the tendinitis as well as help my shoulders, the former I have to do before playing.

Steroids in the meanwhile? (I won't tell the Olympic committee if you won't)
