This question might be a little weird, but I was wondering, since there are a lot of different ways to perform a drum solo, how to practice for them.
I'm looking forward to play something clean, not the noisy ones sounding more like an elephant jumping on a desk than real music. Two of my favourite solo drummers are Simon Phillips and Tal Bergman.
But even after long years of training, I still don't manage to do a proper drum solo. I mean, I can punch everywhere in the tempo without any problem, but it's not well structured, and a little messy. So every live concert I do, I try to avoid this part as much as possible, and it goes over and over again.
So, how can I do if I want to improve myself in soloing on drums?
