That thing where I felt the hi-hat 'breathing' happened again today...
... as a guitar teacher - I'm a big fan of 'Primers.' After a little more than 3 months approaching a second instrument on my own - I've hit a few walls. It's only natural that I would begin to consult a step by step guide to pick up on what I've been missing. At this point - I welcome a teacher.
... using a slow tempo tune to practice getting around on the toms.
Working on getting the feet comfortable in the left-handed set-up. This will be good for the right hand too (I guess it's called 'right-hand-comping' when you're left-handed).
When I'm playing a beat and begin to notice the hi-hat 'breathing' - it feels like something has come to life. For me - that's something worth remembering in 'today's groove.'
Began studying drums in February 2018. Loving every minute of it!.
