|DRUMS in PINE BLUFF
I recently hauled my drum kit down to Pine Bluff where we are now staying for a while. What a good idea!
And today saw my 2,000,000th hit on the ol’ pads and it was only fitting that it should be to Cat Empire. And you too can be there! - click the Sol y Sombra link below. [note: That was November 2007 - Update: April 2008 and we are up to 2,250,000. I now have it set up so that if a cool tune comes on the Internet Radio playing over the PC, I can turn, move 1 metre, flick one switch and I'm bangin away on the ol Yamaha. Sweet!]
Pretty rough on the edges, but not bad considering lack of play (maybe 15-20 sessions in the 6 months in USA). Basically played to this tune constantly for the last 2 sessions = around 20 times. Actually it sounds a lot better that you think when you're hitting away.
Can you tell the couple of times when I drop both sticks? Great fun and must look silly with headphones on and nothing but ‘tap tap’ going on.
I tell you what Dads – ban video games and get one of these!
