Re: How to Evaluate Yourself
Well, a good way to tell is the way you hold your sticks, remember, hold the sticks with the back of your hands up, and use your wrists to play, not your arms. Now, that doesn't mean don't use your arms entirely, usually on a drum set you play with your arms for more volume. Another thing, practice your rudiments, listen to them, and then listen to someone who knows how to do them well and compare. Rudiments like paradiddles, dragadiddles, rolls, flams, etc.
