Well, I don’t know what to say, except WOO! I have long loved CooperGroove sticks ever since they were recommended by Tammy Mitchell-Woods over on Drummergirls United. I sweat like a beast and these sticks create just the right amount of grip for my hands. I haven’t been shy about posting my love for CooperGroove (they were on my Holiday Wish List over at TomTom Magazine) and guess what? After speaking with the team, I officially endorse the brand as an Artist! I’m so excited…heat is on to keep practicing and improving to represent them well. Rock on!
Gotta get practice in where we can, which for me meant a late night (early morning) session at 2am. Groggy and a bit nuts before bed, but I was able to run through a short warm-up exercise to increase left hand speed, play along to my favorite Sleater-Kinney song, “One Beat” (below), and jam to three new songs I’m learning for Below Blackstar, the Seattle-based band that I recently joined–huzzah! What about you? What day are you on? What did you practice? #day3
