You Get Better By Playing

You get better by playing. I do remember playing to anything playable, be it a fast or slow song, as long as i was creating a beat i was cool. At a point in my life as a drummer i was Gig less. Nobody was calling me for a gig, no musical friends and being an introvert i just couldn't step out and go look for a church or person in need of a drummer(they call it the comfort zone). I was stuck at home but you know what, that didn't stop me from playing. Playing what exactly? your guess is as right as mine........ "Chairs and Pillows".

Still that didn't stop me from playing coz i knew this was just a temporary phase in my life and i  knew i was going to  pass through it one way or the other. I played and played and played. I practiced the rudiment, played every fills and rolls i could think of even though the chairs and pillows weren't tuned enough to give me the sound i needed, i played and when the opportunity came after being Gig less, guess what? I nailed it. I killed it. I broke a leg. I did a lot of  things 😄. Errrm what i am saying is YOU GET BETTER BY PLAYING.
