When I began playing guitar - I knew nothing about music (except that I loved it). There came a point where I'd gathered enough information/experience to begin what I would later refer to as 'noodling.' This was the phase where I began to sit down and practice for longer periods of time - repeating myself endlessly... but enjoying it! It was this phase where I began to feel more comfortable improvising... able to entertain myself for hours... without fatigue. Today - I don't equate 'noodling' with 'practice' (or even playing... really). But - as I work myself into some sort of 'intermediate' phase with a new instrument - I'm remembering how important it was get to that place. It was the foundation from which future exploration and intimacy with the instrument would spring.
Began studying drums in February 2018. Loving every minute of it!.
