It's been challenging getting fired up to write about some of the topics I've covered in recent weeks...
Sure - I like playing like Tony Williams...
...but others have written so-damn-much, what am I going to add to the conversation.
The last lesson I was this excited to write about was the "live rounds" episode. Even now I'm perking up;)
So - today's lesson is something you might hate me for...
...but which I love. It's that dotted-8th sh$#.
And we go deeeeep. As in, I was listening to the edit, going, "are they gonna turn on me with pitchforks?"
As in, I'm picturing my viewership dropping off at minute 2 of this video.
But think Kevin Smith's Fat Man on Batman. Think Labor of Love from somebody who (have I mentioned this yet?) deeply loves this subject.
Today's lesson is not going to make your fills faster (though it will spark some new ideas).
Today's lesson is not going to make you better looking (though it will put a smile on your face, which, scientists agree, improves attractiveness).
And it won't give you a big, hulking, NFL/PED Muscle Meat frame to showcase on the beach (though it will improve your coordination, and myelinate neural pathways, the same process that allows people to add plates to their deadlift).
So I give you: the Humble Dotted Eighth. If you're one of the few, the proud, the Drum Nerds, this one's for you.
