If up to now you’re only using YouTube for searching for funny clips of cats, you’ve gone wrong somewhere along the way.
Drummers can use YouTube to their advantage, by recording clips of themselves playing and uploading them for the world to see. Whether it be a drum cover, a mini lesson, some playing advice, anything at all, getting yourself out there can help you get noticed.
In fact, there’s plenty of drummers that have made a name for themselves that way. How about the Drummer At The Wrong Gig? Or Cobus? Or the fantastically bizarre Adventure Drums?
Oh, and even if your skin isn’t quite thick enough to hit the upload button, recording yourself playing and watching it back is great for picking out any faults in your style or areas to work on.
