Re: Can you read sheet music?

Boomka, I can read your chart easily. I'm sure if we both played it mine would be a little different from yours but the gist is there. I would be able to get through it without a rehearsal.

Re: The power of smiling

My wife used to tell me that, when I was playing, I looked miserable. I didn't believe her until I saw some pictures of myself. Now I put on my "drummers face" and look I am having a good time and...

When playing one up and one down...
