I’ve played through the entire Wormwood album, and had a stab at most of Controller (went better than expected) but nothing to shout about.
I’ve decided that after my degree, I want to try and teach in the states.
Failing that, I want to go and study more in the states!
After watching just under 4 hours of Mike Mangini, then watching my own videos I felt like I knew absolutely nothing about what I love. He has an amazing approach to his drumming, down to how muscle memory affects his technique and the science behind how he remembers all the polyrhythms and complicated drum parts he plays.
I really regret not learning to sight read from a younger age now, but all will be corrected!
