Endurance and velocity.

Posted: Fri May 20, 2016 9:06 am

My bass tech keeps telling me I don't play with enough velocity and I'm always sore after an easy warm up. Any advice for endurance and velocity?

Velocity is just a fancy word for speed. Make your strokes faster. It should make the sound thicker. If you want to break that down physically, when you're striking something with a drumstick, you're producing an impulse. Impulse (Newtons*seconds) is calculated by multiplying mass by the change in velocity. Increase either your mass (weight of the stick/mallet) or your velocity (speed at which you strike the head) and the impulse value will be greater. But that's thinking too hard.


Be sure to warm up and stretch the muscle groups you use after you play, and do some chopout stuff often to build the muscles in your hands. Playing with high velocity does get taxing.
