True pro for sure D. Love your groove. Man i wish I kept singing during my early years of playing. Back when I was 15, I played and sing which was advantage in pay hikes. Drummers that could sing and play just got paid more. But the real reason is that it just made it that much more fun.

You sound great D...keep it happening.

Nice work Don,

Great groove, and Backup vox too! I'm just getting around to listening to some posts from the ''bytes'' section, which I don't visit enough..

You've got a nice crisp snare that voices all those ghost notes nicely, but I know 99 percent of that is coming from your hand..

You guys have a great groove for sure---But I know that already Wink

lol! You went back a whole year for this one, D. L.
Mapex makes really good sounding equipment, but don't
make the mistake I did of buying anything from their medium
line... Terrible quality control... Lots of hardware failure issues.
And this isn't just with me. I've heard similar horror stories of
the same nature from other middle line Mapex equipment owners.

That was a tough gig because we had to play really soft.
Trying to pull any kind of feeling from your instrument when
having to play that way is a real challenge...

Thanks for the comp, D. They always means something special
when they come from you.

Ditto.

I particularly vibe with what its like to PULL the sound from the instrument... especially when the equipment just doesn't produce what you're PUTTING into it. I repeat: PUTTING not PUSHING.

Believe me, I've had those times when sitting at someone else kit without the time to tune it. Then there are some inviting me to sit in, but stating: DON'T CHANGE anything. Dang; why invite me in the first place! I could be home writing and then going to sleep! Sleep

Great job Don. You're quite a talented man. No wonder Audrey loves you. Guess what?....

I love you too; but obviously not in the same Way! flower lol!
