lol, too funny Ian. in my old band days behind the drums everyone use to tell me I need to hit my gretch harder, no harder, no harder yet! it got to the point I needed to use bats as sticks and bring 2 spare snare skins. now I have arthritis in my left shoulder…friggin guys :imp:

Yes me too, but I am intrigued with the big sound.

but there are no rules in Jazz. One time change sounds not quite tempodic. The main one works though.
