Default Re: Drumming: the spiritual side

I think as one gets older, this is the situation in life. It's called sharing, prioritizing, and being part of the whole and not just the one.

When I can let go, it feels like the music and the atmosphere somehow tell me what to play, and it always sounds better than what I had planned on...The only negative I have found personally, is that, at that point, I am no longer making eye contact with anyone (eyes closed, or simply looking away)...but the musical connection with the crowd is stronger than ever, and I hope that makes up for it.
Practice, Improve, Repeat...
