LR5: Learn to Play the Drums

I’ve been watching Jackson play the drums since he was 8 years old. I’m in awe of how he can pick up a beat from his instructor and instantly bring the movement of 2 arms and 2 legs together to make that precise combination of sounds. I’ve tried before and couldn’t get simple snare and cymbal combos to work.

This time will be different though, right? Well, it better be because Jackson has not only volunteered to teach his old man a new trick, he’s signed me up to perform at a recital on April 15th in front of a group of seasoned young drummers from the Santa Barbara Drum Lab. I hope this doesn’t become one of those, “It sounded like a good idea at the time.”

Here is a collection of outtakes from my 1st lesson.
