Drumeo Gab Podcast

Are ya tired of hearing, "so, like, uhh talk to me about how you started playing drums" in drumming podcasts? I'm gonna say, probably not as much as the guests are. I dunno, I think it's better to cut to the chase and explore pinpoint moments in their lives by forming curiosities around my research :0 IF YOU ARE DOWN FOR THAT; WELCOME! (Side Note: I strongly believe that the best part of the podcasting experience for listeners is the ability to connect with the host. So, don't be shy :)

#humpdaygiveaway Week 2 - What is Daniel's favorite band?

In this episode, I spoke with Daniel Potts, an armless drummer. I recall the first time that I saw Daniel on Instagram, was from a share account and you can't ignore the first impression of seeing Daniel play drums. I actually could not believe what I was seeing. He doesn't just play either, he plays really well. He is very clean in his execution, his ghost note consistency is advanced, his accuracy is incredible and he does it all from a vantage point that makes me question if he can even really see what is going on. It is a sight to behold.

Naturally, I am curious about how this all came to be. People are naturally drawn towards things that are out of the ordinary, for the majority. You somehow need to know how details like how you approach something new, how to deal with everyday life or how you learned to play the drums!? And his answer is simple. "Can I?"

As Daniel explains, he has had to approach everything with an open mind and figure a way to do the things that most of us take for granted. This constant challenge is obviously the driving force behind Daniel's motivation for life. With drums, it took a long time to find a setup that would be comfortable for him and much trial and error in his technique, just like anyone learning drums. In the long run, all that I can say is that it is hard to believe that someone can operate the lower half of their with that much accuracy and dexterity. To me, that is absolutely incredible. Just how a person can adapt to their surroundings, physical conditions, and situations. The human body is a fascinating thing.  

Daniel and I get into some pretty personal detail about his life. The podcast is filled with honest conversation and there are many bright shining moments. It is a podcast to reflect on your own personal challenges and how we can negotiate them with the idea of "Can I?" rather than "How do I?" One sounds much more optimistic in tone, wouldn't ya say?
