A Different Drummer

Keep meaning to post that my drumming lessons are going well. My new teacher, a jazz drummer, is brilliant as he goes step by step and you learn to read music. Early lessons concentrated on the snare drum and reading/playing quarter, eighth, and 16th notes with rests and accents. Now we have moved on to the kit, using high-hat, bass drum, and snare. I practise 20-30 minutes a day. What's my dream here? That's for another day, but it has something to do with Yellowknife, a cowboy hat, and a smoky bar.
