. @matt_karrs // 03.04.2018, too fucking early in the morning.
a jam with @matt_karrs. march 4th, 10:52 am. right before @kieranfmoore came through. (how the fuck has this only been more than a month ago?)
i legitimately woke up when @matt_karrs came by, 52 minutes before. everything is cold. us...our playing...my coffee.
side note y’all: my wonderful, wonderful band @skylarpocket is playing a show this Friday at a coffeehouse (4/20 ayy), trans life 2 (4/28), & 4/29. the last two dates are at boontunes. be there, or ric flair.
i felt the beat to this song deep inside my little noodle boi soul (pardon the 8th note kick drum timing fuckups around the 8th measure).

hey. what’s up? how are ya? i wanted to show y’all a clip from March 23rd, when I drummed w/@onnistmusic for our campus’s event “Her Story,” an open mic celebrating the beauty of women.
drum playing notes: that lecture hall has a loud sound system; however, some of @onnistmusic’s songs were mastered at a lower volume. as a result, my ears couldn’t hear some of the backing tracks too well (like this song). i’m off-time most times because i had to REALLY put more effort into listening/being in time with the backing tracks while being focused on my limb/overall dynamics. I couldn’t go too #hardinthepaint (ex: right hand on the hi-hats during the last 8 bars of the verse) so it was all rims and hi-hat pedal kicks. limb independence is still a development.
drum set notes: i mean, i wanted to use my floor tom but eh. i also didn’t want to dampen my snare too much, but i was really considerate of the room size and peoples’ ears (so note my @underoathband hoodie on it for the attempted P H A T - ness). there’s also 4 moongels on my crash cymbal & 2 on my hi-hats.
