    This gentleman apparently found a way around the usual and worked with what he has - (or has not).
    A lesson to be learned here for some of us, and it doesn't require lots of schooling, just an inventive mind. :cool:

    as long as you have something to say techinque matters not :)

    this is one of best videos ive seen in a long time;

    He is better than most drummers i know by a long shot


    Here is some more amazing inspiration; yes this video is an HR long and is probably one of the most inspiration videos you will watch all your life..

  9. If anything, I'd say that this proves counter to your point. Focused practice with good technique will help you overcome most obstacles. This should be posted in every thread where someone asks if their hands are too small to play the bass, or if they are a lost cause because of an issue they have.

    Just proves what I have always said. The term "proper technique" is way over used. Everyone's body is different and what might be the proper technique for one person may not be right for another. Find what works best for you.

    He is a better drummer and a better bass player than a lot of folks who are making a lot of money at it. Dude smokes me, not that it's saying much.
