This entire quote exactly fits my situation.I turn 50 in a month and I've never been better as a drummer. Its because i spent the last few years relearning my technique. I moved away from using a more muscle oriented technique to utilizing rebound lot more.
oh that's that music I can't play. lol. It sounds real good, I really like the rolls incorporating the hats around 103 mark. I really can't play real jazz. Good work Alex.
Well said PlayTheSong. Tad older at 59 and have the exact same thoughts. Blessed and grateful.I too turn 53 this year. There are so many of here it's amazing. I'm not "fit" and I have no excuse for that, but after returning to drumming last year after 30 years away, I find I'm now back up to my former ability and moving beyond it (not that it was ever pro-level).
I'm another lucky one with no major repairs or impairments, so I want to improve as much as I can while that's still the case. You never know when you'll blow out a whatever and that'll be the end of improvement.
One blessed and grateful old dude!
