    Are you really willing to do what it takes to be a top-notch studio and live drummer?Hey there, you are listening to Drummer Daily, the Podcast, new world's first and only, I think, daily podcast for drummers. My name is Daniel, I am your host and in case you've never listened to this podcast before, this is how every podcast is. No frills, no music, no intro, just me talking. Why is that? It's because I do it everyday and if I had to do all that other stuff, I would never get around to doing the podcast. I want to do it daily for you guys, so that's why you don't hear any crazy production on this. Speaking of crazy production, and I have heard it from a few of you guys, that you'd like to hear more practical tips for drumming.

    My friend Dan said something interesting today after we finished filming my Boot Camp for Drummers.I've been filming all day for Boom Click Boot Camp. I'm recording this Friday night. My family's downstairs watching the Olympics opening ceremony which is like blowing my mind. I feel like I'm that guy on Super Troopers, I'm freaking out man because it's crazy.Anyway, I've been having a great day. Like I said, we filmed all the pre-recorded stuff for Boom Click Boot Camp today and I just wanted to share with you guys. There's this crazy thing that happened ... well it's not crazy to me because I knew it was true, but it was fun because my buddy, Dan, who's shooting all of these videos for me was here with me today. After we got done, we were wrapping up, we did the whole thing and it was great. What was crazy was he was like,"Yes man, I think this is going to do really well." He's a musician too.

    Every pro drummer I know shares this one trait - adopt this into your life and get a head start in your music career!Yeah this is Daniel and you're listening to the Drummer Daily Podcast. I'm going to stop numbering these podcast, I was saying what number each episode was, but I'm not going to do that anymore. I realized that I plan on doing these daily and honestly. I'll probable be forgetting what number it is very soon, so no more numbers.I will just say and mention one thing, yesterday if you listened to yesterday's podcast. You probably just heard it randomly cut off at the end, which if you actually listen to the podcast. You'll know that was just par for the course yesterday, things going wrong, having to fight through things. Which happens a lot sometimes and the life of a entrepreneur and definitely life of a drummer. Things don't always go right, so sorry about that if you heard that. We're recovering today.

    What to do if you're stuck trying to play a difficult part, and just want a shortcut.I had an interesting afternoon, but before I tell you about that, I just want to remind you to go over to and check out what I got going on there. If you haven't already signed up for my Boom Click Boot Camp Beta, go over there and do that,, and check that out. What I wanted to tell you about today was something that happened to me earlier today, and I don't know if I want to cry or I want to laugh about it. You might have seen, if you follow me on Instagram, if you don't, you should, but over on Instagram, I was doing a video, shooting a video of me playing drums. I like to at least try to get some professional mics and multi-track it into logic so that it sounds decent. See for privacy and opt-out information.
