Hi and a very happy new year ! Let's hope 2022 is going to be a happy and healthy year for us all.
Do you set goals for the year ahead ? Do you keep a practice diary ? I find it a very positive thing to do both. It's useful to both push you and keep you focused.
WHAT I HAVE BEEN PRACTICING RECENTLY
The Drummers Complete Vocabulary . A great book that I keep returning to . Go through the rudiments practice your chops and look at different stickings then apply it all to your drum set.
Just a great picture !
WHAT I HAVE BEEN READING RECENTLY
A great read from the author drum educator George Lawrence Stone. Educational, witty, humorous and full of great ideas.
WHAT I HAVE BEEN LISTENING TO RECENTLY
All the way from Ireland . Fontaines D.C. The band's second album released in July 2020.My current favourite . Described as post punk but it's a whole lot more. Go on....Give it a listen
FACEBOOK AND YOUTUBE
Coming soon !!!!! Hahahaha
This was in the last newsletter . Did anyone practice them??? Let me know.
Triplets with sticking variations to try out here. Play slowly to start keep all unaccented notes low and accented notes will pop out clear and relaxed .........ENJOY!!! and thanks. Chris X
