I've a new page coming to the site, drum transcriptions. One goal of mine this year is a daily drum transcription, however small, that will be posted. These are quick and dirty hand drawn scores of what I'm practicing and listening to.
Time to step back for a few weeks and spend time in the garden and take some time away from the fray.
Three musical activities over the next few weeks:
See you all in a couple of weeks.
After drumming in New Orleans my goals for July are to practice classical piano. Fingers are feeling neglected. Secondly, maintain my tone and hands on the drum kit.
Highlights in July include jamming with pianist Jacqueline Leung. Piano and drums. Last week drumming New Orleans style, this week free improvisation. I love this career.
