It’s been too long. Feeling the urge to play. Not just for a little while or to get it out of my system. I’m missing that part of my old life when playing was a given. It isn’t anymore.
During the past year I’ve been playing casually around the house. Sometimes it’s a blast. I can still play and feeling that power in my hands and feet is still a rush. But it’s time to take another step.
What I need: new drums, new ideas and a direction. What do I want to do? Honestly, I want to play something heavy and high (sorry jazzer friends). I suppose I’m flexible as to a genre right now. But that is also a part of the choices I have to make.
Connecting with some local pros would probably be helpful for the new ideas. I am definitely stale with the daily “what to do’s”. Even applied basics are more effective with a “direction” and right now I’m still trying to set that. In drum corps and music college days this was all, of coarse, built-in and easy. Time to begin engaging discussions with friends and “decide”.
