Boyo gave me a stern talking to a while back about the fact that while I am able to keep a beat, I have fatal flaws in my technique that will keep me from advancing and possibly cause an injury. "Dad, this is stuff FROM 6TH GRADE! You can't even do the most basic stuff and you have to go back now and do it." "Um, yeah I guess I misunderstood how many reps I needed to learn this. Drums is so much a physical thing..." "Come over here Dad, we are starting over." And so I have been working a lot on elementary technique. It's working. I'm getting better.
