Have you ever noticed that if you have to walk up 3 flights of stairs everyday, at first it’s the worst thing ever. Then after you do it for a year you can’t believe it ever was difficult. Then when you walk up 1 flight of stairs it’s a joke! This is the same principle of why you should use a heavy stick to practice with. Especially your rudiments! This will make playing your kit at practice, on stage and at the studio seem like childs play!
