I'll be brushing up originals starting tomorrow with a view to another open-mic next week.

RE: Musicians, what are you practicing?
Good luck with that Thumpa. Smile

I had a pretty good day. Charted out the rest of the set. So that is done. Mind you, I know the tunes now and wont need the charts! Smile

I spent an hour on bongos while listening to the set. Ideally I need my congas, they being so prevalent in today's pop/funk music. Sadly the guy in possession of my percussion equipment is in Thailand working. So I must await his return.

Then this evening I spent about an hour screwing around working out how to play various Afro Cuban rhythms on an udu drum. For example, an udu version of a son montuno. Ha, as if I'll ever have to play that. But it was fun.

Tomorrow is Saturday here so I wont practice any instruments at home. There'll be people home in the flats and I don't want to piss them off! I'll probably just practice rudiments on the pad with sticks. Maybe read through some solos for snare or something.

Then on Sunday I have the rehearsal with the band. I'll be working out ways to make my bongos sound like congas and at least I have my charts so I won't have to remember anything. Smile

Now I think about it, I've not played congas since before September 14. Perhaps I should do a little practice by myself before I take them in front of anyone. Wink

I have begun to retrieve the nerves in my hands. So now it hurts to play bongos or timbau or djembe. I expect my congas within days. Practice is going to hurt! Must be done.

Either that or I tape my fingers like Poncho Sanchez! I think I'll stick with the pain. Smile
