Hey everyone, how are you?
It’s been a while since I did a blog (at least a week) and a lot has gone on.
Like I say there has been a lot going on which has included a lot of writing and planning. But the main thing that I have done is really get back playing the drums. And yesterday I travelled a couple of hours to have a drum lesson with a pro drummer. It was amazing, seriously. I am finding the experience hard to put into words. I went there for an hours lesson and it was just so good. I have drummed on and off for years but it is in the last two years that I really got properly into it. We went through some rudiments on the practice pad and on the kit. Then did some beats getting them to groove. Finally we went into fills using the rudiments that we went through at the start. I got to play his drum kit and was filmed playing though some beats. We played with the click on and off. It was such an incredible experience and the hour went so quickly.
The journey was by train and taxi and it was so worth it. I’d totally be up for learning more and doing it again. Eddy (the pro drummer) is going to be doing some courses which I am going to sign up for. Drumming for me and music in general helps me in so many ways. From anxiety related issues to just having fun and a good time.
Today, I am going to get back on the kit and put what I learnt into practice and build up a solid practice routine. I am going to be writing a lot in the week and I don’t know how much time I will get on the kit. So, I want to make the most of the day. That being said, I also want to relax a little and maybe get in some gaming. It has just been an epic weekend.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
