Welcome back to the start of a new season of the Drummer’s Weekly Groovecast. We greatly appreciate your patience and support during our hiatus. We look forward to bringing you the best in topical conversation, interviews, and recommendation segments.
After our cold open we debut our new show theme and discuss what we’ve been doing during our break. Our topic for the week is “Performance Panic/Neurosis”. In past episodes we’ve covered several subjects that deal with problems arising from outside sources: stage bullies, outdoor events, unforeseen and uncontrollable circumstances, etc. Today we discuss how to manage problems that are self-manifested. We often sabotage ourselves when we get the chance to perform with or for a great musician or personal hero. We get inside our heads and let the voice of negativity and doubt ruin our experience. We discuss our personal understanding and the different ways it has affected us during gigs and sessions. Sometimes we respond by over playing. Sometimes we play it too safe. Then are times we completely panic and send ourselves off the rails. After addressing each scenario, we talk about proven ways to rationalize and overcome these stressful situations. We then finish up the show with must-have gear recommendations.
