Ben Sesar, drummer for Brad Paisley: Some friends and I were talking about practicing on a pad. I was like, "I've got to work on my chops." My friend Kevin said, "You don't need any more chops!" And we had a laugh. It's true. Of course you want more, but what I generally strive for in my working life… it isn't more power. Because I have hit the apex with that. I don't need more power. I don't need more speed. What I need more of is space. How wide can I make things feel? And sometimes that turns into accuracy. How can I make my margin of error smaller, make my consistency better?
