Here's the thing... maybe it was the military time, maybe it's working in the medical field.. I don't know. But I am the kind of guy who has to do ONE thing at a time, and get comfortable with it. I am really interested in simply becoming a good, solid rhythm player. Nothing fancy, nothing flashy... I just want to be really good at ONE thing for now. Maybe when I myself feel really cool about it, I'll start thinking "leads," but being a drummer, I guess rhythm just appeals to the way I think about music a little more.
Does this approach make sense, or am I missing the boat entirely?
