An interesting thing that the past 7..8... god knows how many months its been has brought to my attention..
As a bog standard working drummer generally making music in a large variety of genres to a level that I can handle on any given day..
Dependent on my mood, the amount of teaching ive done that day, the practice ive managed to fit in or indeed the mental pre conceptions of what the people im working with think of me..
You will see a different version of me..
The Idea that anyone else would be interested in my life and my playing outside of the JOURNEYMAN element of playing music daily would be so far removed and in someways based on my background of a gig is a gig... and a village hall barn dance is the same value as a pop tour... Social media for me went no further than pictures of fun nights and maybe a drum kit pic....
Whats my point.. well the point is that with not playing live in recent months does that mean that im now thinking differently about it all,,
Yes... with having my studio and all the benefits that gives me, I have found that during this period I have found gratification and music making that has gone well above most things ive done in the last few years..... I feel my recording process is better, my sound choices and playing decisions are stronger and if anything I feel more confident in my playing than I have for a long time.. And yes am I now going to go past my normal reserved comfort zone in putting myself out there,,
Think what we do....Not flashy but professional and useful is something that I think some people might want to know about it more...
