Good morning drummers!
Here we are again, drum in hand and time set aside. Ah, the sweet small luxuries in life. Isn't it a beautiful thing that we allow ourselves such luxuries? An hours drumming everyday for 21 days. An hour to simply play! As serious adults in a mind numbingly busy and overwhelmingly noisy world it is a wonder in itself that we can do this. I have another confession! Yesterday I bought a record, yet another luxury! This is an outrage!!! (For all those Might Boosh fans out there) The record is of a pre Iranian revolution psychedelic rock musician called 'Kourosh Yaghmaei.' It is incredible and spreads it's magical tone throughout my entire house like a musical incense.  Just another sweet luxury.

Today's session is about stamina building, strength in playing and...luxury. Try joining all of those drills from the technique charts you downloaded and play them together for a decent amount of time. Then, take a break to stretch and repeat once again. Simply run through as many as you can holding each one for a minute or two (or longer, depending on your own body) and then stop to stretch and relax the arms, wrists, back and shoulders.

Have a wonderful Day 2 of practice and revel in the luxury that we are allowing ourselves. Enjoy!
