Up For The Downstroke...

My father is a drummer.. when he wasn't on tour or on the road... I loved spending time in the studio with him. I of course loved to hear him play... but it was when he was doing his "stick" work that made me sooo relaxed I would fall asleep. If you don't know much about drums the stick work is just this fast rhythmic repetition of the drums sticks... To this day if I go to the house and he is in the studio I will go and take a nap listening to him play... it is one of the most comforting sounds to me
