I know I’m always pushing pocket...groove...play for the song. But there’s another side...just having fun. And there’s nothing wrong with part of your practice time being spent just shedding. Throwing ideas around.
Heard this song earlier in the week and it just got stuck in my head.
Not what I would normally play along with in my practice time. Or even really listen to actually.
I dug the Latin vibe to it though. Reminded me of that Santana tune “Smooth”. So I messed around with some bell and tom patterns in the groove.
It’s important to not lose the urge to just play...like a kid would play. No real purpose. Just seeing what you create. Just mess around with things.
You’ll come up with a few things to stick in your back pocket and pull out later.
