Re: Helpful advice or Shortcuts ?....where's the line ?

I'm with you Russ, and add my apologies as well if I've affected the direction of discussion.

Re: Getting comfortable with Ostinatos?

The great thing about a foot ostinato is that you can practice it anywhere. Unlike practicing hand coordination, foot tapping/toe wiggling is not something most people would notice. That means you...

Re: This Strikes Me as a Poor Idea.

I agree - very bad idea.

But isn't there a small part of you that wonders what it would be like to hop up there and try out that kit?

Re: Drumming Barefoot or in Socks?

If socks weren't specified in the subject title, my first thoughts on your reference to "pearly whites" wouldn't have been socks, but underwear! (ie. tighty-whities)
