If you are a beginner, this can give you serious goals for drumming. Not only does this earns respect, but also oodles of awe.
The person I am talking about is Mithridatic drummer Kevin Paradis, and his latest feature in which he has broken the record for World’s Fastest Double-Kick Drummer (insert wow emoji)
Turns out, Paradis set out to learn some of the parts written for Mithridatic’s new album, and he found himself playing at 260bpm for short periods of time! He went on to see if he could extend that into breaking the world record of 1034 double-kick strokes in one minute. Once he accomplished that (by a mere 3 strokes! he misfired on 3 along the way as well), he took the concept to its next logical extension, endeavoring to break the record for double-kick strokes in FIVE minutes, previously 4,595. And the rest is history. Watch:
Looks down at feet, wondering how much of this they can handle.
