Rhytm is a way to transmit a description of experience
in an emotional and not abstract way.
It is more than a metaphor:
It is a physical experience as real as any other.

yes....i have lots of rough trax of these drums being played. it'sactually better to hear them like that.You really hear what the drums sound like ratherthan a lot of post-production crap on them, ya know?

I play lots of different styles ofmusic. Right now, i'm on the road with country artist Carolyn Dawn Johnson. I also do a good bit of session work in Nashville.

That's fantastic. Did you get that when broadkasters were in normal production, or did you special order it?
