Relaxing the Bassline?
Posted: Wed Aug 16, 2017 9:43 am
Hey guys! How's everyone's marching season going? I'm having a slight problem with my high school's bassline. With the exception of one extremely quick learning vet they all tense up to a point that the drums are virtually silent when heard from the stands. Not only that, but it of course strains their rhythmic abilities as well. There are 4 basses, 3 vets and 1 rookie. Theyre all sophomores and the rookie is a freshman. Any tips on how to keep these new players relaxed?
