Observations

As you can see, I added a little bit (just a little bit) of drum practice to my routine. Being a trained drummer, I still have my chops (and my sticks), so I thought it would be really beneficial to use them to improve my rhythm — as it’s one of my weaknesses. Also playing snare really helps with inventing new rhythmic patterns and getting unstuck when you notice that you tend to use the same pattern while improvising on bass. So, not doing anything crazy — as i have already enough to do maintaining my two instruments — just playing some rudiments and simple solos in order to solidify my GROOOOVE MAN.
