I’m taking a new approach to my drum layout. I’ve moved everything slightly forward. I’m sitting a little further back than usual, Drums are lower and further away. The slightest change from what you’re used to can really change your comfort level and effect your playing.
🎵 Everybody - @logic
I been knockin' doors down like a Jehovah witness
God as my witness, I'm with this
But on the real I think I need another witness!
If it was 1717, black daddy, white momma wouldn't change a thing
Light skin mothafucka certified as a house nigga
Well I'll be God damned, go figure
In my blood is the slave and the master
It's like the devil playin' spades with the pastor
But he was born with the white privilege!
Man what the fuck is that?
White people told me as a child, as a little boy, playin' with his toys
I should be ashamed to be black
And some black people look ashamed when I rap
Like my great granddaddy didn't take a whip to the back
Not accepted by the black or the white
I don't give a fuck, praise God, I could see the light
Everybody talkin' 'bout race this, race that
Wish I could erase that, face facts
Everybody people, everybody bleed, everybody need something
Everybody love, everybody know, how it go

At last I got into this, Land is just on the top of my fav four mallet marimba pieces for its eternal, romantical beauty. I in fact have a different interpretation as I'm not deeply into the eastern Asian cultures - so far, I try to write my own imagined story for this enormous piece and I also hope to be able sharing both the story and the original piece someday with you all. Or at least with those who would be interested.
Just a handful of weeks until you guys get to see/hear the music my new band has been writing... In the mean time, here’s some drumming to a guitar part I programmed. Thanks to @cameronalidor for helping me set up my tone, @anupsastry for the encouragement to learn how to program guitar parts (tedious af), and to @tigranhamasyan for the time signature inspiration! The time signature progression of this groove is 5,4,5,4,5,5,5,5.
