Default Re: Drumming: the spiritual side

From a spiritual standpoint, I'd say drumming lifts my spirit and lets it soar in a world that would otherwise crush it and suck the life out of me.

Sorry for being morose, but this world really kicks my a$$ day in and day out.

I like the endorphin rush too. I always feel better after a good session. But for me, drumming is not half as enjoyable if I don't like the people I jam with. That has happened a couple times. I don't get a chance to sit alone with my drums and my thoughts. So for me it's all about the music and possibly finding a spiritual connection with the song through the rhythm. That's when a person plays convincingly and people can feel the vibe in the audience. It's much like a singer who can "own" it and sing a song like they wrote it.
