Jammin' With Brendon

Last night was kind of a landmark night for me.  A wonderful father-son bonding time.  Let me set it up for you.

About six months ago, Brendon started taking drum lessons.  He had a really lame kit that was barely better than a toy, but he practiced some, and learned a lot at his lessons.  Around Christmas time, we got a good deal on a moderate electronic drum kit.  He kept playing and practicing, and taking lessons.

Finally, he got to the point where he can keep a basic steady beat with the kick, a hi-hat or a ride, and the snare. 

Last night, I was supposed to have the guys come over and practice a few more of my tunes, but they all had conflicts, so I was understanding, but still a little disappointed. So, I got Brendon over to the drums, and he and I jammed for just a little bit.  I admire him, because I can't play with both feet and both hands.  It was too much fun.  We decided that we were going to try to get him into the elementary school end-of-year talent show and I would play along.  It'll be fun.

As a musician, it was a real thrill to finally be able to play music with my son on this level.  We've played at various things before, but never before where he was so steady and connected to it.  Lots of fun.
