Glock Revelation: Learning the Melody

Last night I had a simple and empowering experience. Instead of waiting around, while the Apocalypso Tantric Boys Choir's new track "Preaching to the Choir" was being figured out by James and Eric, I decided to learn the header also, on the Glockenspiel.

It made me realize how much time I have been wasting because I thought of myself only as a drummer. This is a seriously huge revelation. Learning the melody gave me a deeper window into the form, and consequently intimacy and command were both amplified.

I might even get to play the Glock on the outro. YES!

Then after rehearsal you can really let your hair down.
