Sheddin' not Shreddin'

Finding the need to head back to the shed to work on a few things--ha ha, maybe a bit more than a few. Progress is slow and steady as I work on hand/foot combinations and my bass drum technique. Never spent much time on this earlier in life--in fact, what I did and called practice wasn't really what passes for deliberate practice these days. Deliberate practice...not playing what comes naturally, but working on that stuff you really don't want to face. The kind of stuff that reminds you of all the previous corners cut and work deferred. This week's rehearsals and gigs got in the way of significant progress, but I should be hitting it hard this coming week. By the end of the week I should have the GoPro set up so I can start reviewing my playing (and perhaps posting some things). Have a great work week!
