BD, eleven's an interesting age to start. A major change happens to people at that age - one minute they're just a kid and suddenly they're a force to contend with. I don't think it's an accident that tribal people used to initiate their young to adulthood at that age. It's like an awakening.

And you woke to drums :)

Wish I'd started younger and had lessons (I started at 15/16) but it's water under the bridge now. All I want to do is improve my groove and dynamics with the limited stuff I can do - to fully digest some of the things I half learned in the past. The ultimate aim I'll never achieve is a Steve Gadd feel.
