Greetings to Middle Eastern Drummers and Dancers in the
Stargate/GatesEdge/Ravensfort/Loch Soillier Area!
I am a intermediate/beginner level drummer in the Stargate/GatesEdge area. I've
been dabbling with drumming for a couple of years, I've decided I want to get
serious about Middle Eastern drumming, but am finding it difficult to get in
enough practice because I can't find anyone to practice with on a regular basis.
I am a good musician and learn fast in a group environment. I played trombone
from 5th grade through 2 years of college and was 1st chair most of that time.
I was also 1st chair trombone in the Houston All-City Orchestra during my Junior
and Senior years in High School (Class of '76). More recently, I played bass
guitar and did some vocals in a garage band for ten years. I am most interested
in the bass rhythms underlying Middle Eastern music, and, once I have that part
of a rhythm down, am quite capable of maintaining a basic beat for others to go
wandering off playing with. I don't usually try to experiment with
embellishments until I am certain I fully understand the basic rhythm and have
solid support from others.
If there is anyone out there in the Greater Stargate area who is interested in
drumming on a regular basis, say, once a week or every other week if possible,
please let me know. I would be willing to travel up to 30 minutes or so each
way if need be.
Or, I would be willing to have practices at my house if there is enough
interest. I live off of SH249 near Breen. Dancers would, of course be welcome
also, as my wife, HE Gwendolen McIver, is a dancer and would enjoy the chance to
interact with other dancers.
If you are seriously interested in practicing, please reply soon!
If you would like to forward this to others who might be interested please do!
