Be carefull, if you play with to much tension you can really hurt yourself.
I know I talked to the guy who owns the studio who has played drums for 30 years and is a drum teacher, he says I hold the sticks wrong... and I have been trying to adapt to what he says. But I think yesterday was particularly bad because I hadn't played drums for months, maybe 8 months or something like that. So it was a shock, it doesn't normally hurt like that. But we'll see next time I play, thanks for your concern!
