just in your hands the sticks hitting the drums. You know, you have the luxury in the studio of playing a little quieter, and it can still be effective, but live sometimes it doesn't work, and also, the drums are different. My live kid is different than my studio kit. So that ends up affecting how I play. So even with that song is taking me a bit to figure out how to play alive and make it feel good. Um, yeah. Great. Now, how do you self reflect when you're when you're up on stage playing? You know, you're saying, Oh, I might be playing too loud or too hard. How do you find that balance, man? I Lately I've been recording every show from behind the drum set. I'll set up my zoom behind the drum set, and which means I can just hear the drums and the bass and a little bit guitar from where you're using the situation. Mike. Yeah, I've got the little capsule I put on there and man, that's a good one because it's very stark rendering of your performance, and it's right behind you. So you get the same picture that you're listening to? Yeah, that's great, man. And it really you hear every nuance. You're every, like, push and pull that You may or may not want to be there, you know? So in the dynamic thing, too. So listening back in some ways is the only way to know. You know what's working dynamically. Sometimes I can be into it and, you know, playing hard and be excited and being like, Yeah, this is killer. And of course, you know, you can't always tell from the audience because they might just be into it regardless. But then I'll listen back, and I got him over playing. I'm playing way too hard on my ride Cymbal playing way too loud on my hats. You know what I mean? Like, something's not working like dynamically. So, um, you know, doing that, recording myself, I would recommend that to every drummer. You know, I would do it at home when I'm practicing, but you only have so much time to listen back some of my home shedding. I just work with a click and try and like, hear what I'm doing. You know, when I'm practicing at home as much as possible in the moment, but yeah, live. It's great, man. Just putting, putting that zoom behind me and then listening back. Sometimes I go on a bike ride and just listen to it track of the weekend show and see, like how things were feeling. That's great advice. I think it's super important to listen back to yourself, probably no matter what you play. If you play guitar vocals, you know you can do the same thing. You know, listen to yourself. Figure out those nuances. It's hard. It's especially in that format where it is very dry and you're you're up front, you know what I mean? It's like it can be painful. You don't always want to do that. You're like, uh, sometimes I'm not in the mood to listen back to myself. My God, I don't want to, like, get depressed right now, but you know, it's good to kick your own ass like that. And once you do it enough, you start to know your own playing enough to where it's like you don't get surprises. You know, I used to be like didn't listen to myself at all, and then I listen to myself every now and then I'd be like, uh, doesn't sound anything like I remember it, you know? And it's true that you don't. It's like listening to your podcast, your own voice. You know, if you don't listen, first time you listen back yourself like I sound like that. Um uh, exactly. So it's like that if you do it enough, then it takes away that shock. And then you can kind of address the problems without being afraid of it and without being reactive and, you know, just like in denial. You know what I mean? You can just be like, Oh, yeah, yeah. Okay. I do that all the time. I always rush that fill. You know what I mean? And you're not surprised by it was like, Okay, how can I fix it? And then when you do hear it better than you're like, Oh, it's better now
