Picked up a copy of this awesome magazine this month. Boy, was I happy to see there was an article called Micropause! Can you guess what that is? That strange thing I wrote about recently where I feel like there is a disconnect between hands and head when playing. It can seem miniscule but it is a hiccup which can easily cause a drummer to get off the beat and rush to catch up and perhaps to the untrained ear it would not be noticed but when I am playing it feels awful. The reasons for a Micropause are obvious especially for a novice like me but it was comforting to know that others out there experience it too!
Meaty interview with Mark Giuliana who is the drummer on one of the songs I am currently listening to A LOT; When I Met You off of David Bowie’s last album.
Worth a read.
