Default Re: How has AGE affected your playing style

At 55 in some ways I'm playing better than when I was younger. I listen more and play for the song. My dynamics are much better, I feel my groove is better. I know my sound is much better. Thanks to members on this site I can tune a drum that sings now. My speed has slowed but that's due to lack of practice, nothing physical. My ego is also in check. I love to play drums now where as in my traveling younger days it was about how mane females can I *&^% on this road trip and where is the next party. That's not to say my playing was bad but it was not always the top priority. Any gig can be your last so I tray and make them all count.
