I have been playing drums for going on 46 years now. I have had a fruitful drumming career, both live and recording, and have many awesome memories and experiences over that time period. Having been less involved in playing drums over the past year or so, I've had some time to ponder what, if anything, I would have done differently when I was just starting out and beginning to get gigs. There are a few things that come to mind......Iooking back, I wish I had more of a rudimental foundation. Those abilities would have come in handy for some things. I would also tell my younger self to not be afraid to relocate. For a long time, I was a "big fish in a little sea" and I often wonder how successful I'd have been if I relocated to a larger area. There are some other things I'd tell my younger self as well, but for now, I'd be curious to see what you all come up with. Any nuggets of wisdom you care to share?
