Thank you. That really is the best advice.
The kid in question will be 15 in July. This is his first instrument. Whereas, I have played bass for 30+ years.
I just learned today that I was able to get him lessons with a guy many consider the best drum teacher in my city. Pretty stoked about that. I'm thinking the teacher may direct what he needs to start on.
Thanks everyone for the advice. I really appreciate it.
Hard won too.
At some point the right thing to do is to let go and let the next generation grapple with things while we sit back and observe, biting tongues.
If someone fought my battles for me all my life, I'd be defenseless.
I like seeing kids fail lol. Makes them stronger, smarter.
No one gets hurt playing drums. It's a great place to let the kids take the lead.
Kids, if you allow them, will keep your mind open.
And I need all the help I can get.
