Ok...not the end of the wrold, but.....i'm a drumer for this band.....and we are going into the studio in about 2 weeks time.........but..i went out on saterday night and through no real fault of my own....fell over and have broken my hand!! which, for a drummer, isnt the best possiable thing to have happend. The nurse said 3-5 weeks for the bone to heal...

anyone know of anything i can do to, not nessesaraly to speed up the bone rapairing, but to mabey be able to play drums. My hand and wrist are really stiff atm, what would be best, rest? or gental exersises??

one handed drumming. Lots of bass drum. Mebbe drum machine for parts you can't do one-handed?

If the drummer from Def Lepard can do it with one arm, you can do it wth one hand,

Tie a stick to your forearm, do it slowly and then speed it up on the computer?

Discrepancy: While at 110 KIAS and 35 deg AOB with full right pedal, trims would not keep helicopter in correct Outer roll loop.

Same with Travis Barker.


If you can't do it with one hand, then DO NOT PLAY!!!

You are only gonna hurt your hand more and possibly not be able to ever play again.


Trust me

It was a joke. He sucks so much, that you might think he only has one hand .
That was the joke, right?

Yeah, I'd go with the genital exercises. One hand and your dick will be good enough for the first week or two.

Well, the drummer for Def Leppard only had one arm and they still rocked my socks...

Take lots and lots of calcium. Also, there is this technique that I learned in High school that worked well for me when I broke my hand in Football. Picture the afflicted area and focus your attention on the area. Picture it healing. Sounds like some hoodoo bullshiit but believe me. it works. I was going to have to wait 3-5 weeks for my hand to heal and it healed in 2.

Be careful though, you may damage the wood in your "drumstick".

Advice: Reinforce your penis.


What?

Well, they do make machines for that now. But a drummer with one useable hand might be able to keep proper time. Maybe you solved the missing link of drumming?
