Drums of Destruction

This week:  a peek into the S.N.F. drummer journal. We are 2 weeks away from our recording weekend and drums are the first matter of business…
I’m having fun preparing for the drum tracks. Oddly enough, I have been breaking drumsticks over the last week. It shows me that this music has me pumped. Besides did too much enthusiasm ever hurt when it comes to drumming? Actually….Don’t  answer  that.

Busted sticks and high quality H20. Too much coffee that day?

Also my 14 year old headphones that have gotten me through ALL my major recording work/practices  are fading fast. These things aren’t cheap and I wasn’t expecting another out of pocket expense. I have to decide on something “for now” – or something that will last AND cost.  I like to get the best I can afford but timing is everything with me right now.

Hi hats cradle the headphones mentioned above. To replace or not to replace?

I am always amazed at how much I learn  when preparing to record.  There are so many ways to get things done and there is always  more to learn.  I feel very confident  with my parts and all the songs.  Can’t  wait to share with everyone, but I cannot guarantee  the safety of any drumstick within arms reach. That reminds me, I need to get to the music store and grab  some more sticks before the next session!
