Look what I’ve been doing tonight!!
I was playing taxi for Ethan and had to take him to band rehearsal (they have a contest in a fortnight) and I went all prepared to sit and wait in the bar downstairs with my OU coursework book and a plan to do some studying while I waited. But when I got there, I was asked if I would like to join in and as I hadn’t brought my cornet, I thought I’d have a bash on percussion instead.
What a great experience!! Mismatched beaters, no bass drum sticks and no side drum that I could see but no matter. I couldn’t find the woodblock neither, so made do with the skulls and the only thing that I played with the right tool was the tambourine with my hand.
So it’s been a whirlwind trip round the world with Phileas Fogg for the Pamster this evening, and a mighty fine bash it was too!
