Re: Sloppy fills

Re: Brain Game

Ah, I just tired that, it works - with Two triangles. Apparently, drawing a circle in air with one hand and square with other hand is not possible (or at least extremely difficult) due to the...

Re: The worst gig of my life

Totally agree. If these are the conditions, I am so glad to not be a "professional" subjected to these conditions. If conditions are known to be not acceptable by reasonable standards, then we...

Put both hands up in air. Now take left hand and draw circles in air. Stop. Now take right hand and draw a square in air. Stop. Now attempt to do both at same time - drawing circle with left and...

Re: Preparing for an audition

Re: The worst gig of my life

I did this kit share thing a few times but I don't really like it. I enjoy playing my own instrument. So, I prefer not to play someone elses. So, that kind of share situation is way down my...

Re: Is hard to make a living out of jazz? Are there any jobs out there?

Here's a thought...we know that ideally we should follow our passion in life. But here's the thing:: People generally have more than one passion. It is not a singlular thing. So my thought is pick...
