Agreed, and something that I fully realise I should be constantly monitoring.yes getting all the right notes in the right order is one thing...getting it to sound smooth and swinging with the right dynamics is what takes the real time - but is actually the most rewarding.
Many thanks to you for the big post explaining the left foot leading and how you break it down - this is something that I'll chip away at, lots to digest! However I'll be taking it straight from the on and off beat left foot ostinato just to get the coordination down. You've given me lots to practice, I really appreciate your time!
Sadly I'm not in a position to get to a full kit in this lockdown so I'm being as disciplined as possible with pads!
