Son's first jazz band solo
« on: May 27, 2010, 09:12:34 PM »

OK, it was recorded on a phone, so the quality isn't great and you can't see him, but the crowd reaction says it.

The song was Louie Louie, which was 7 minutes long. This is his 10 seconds.

Oh yeah - he's 11.

Pretty cool.

When does he start on Zen?

Accidentally edited your post... sorry.

The Zen is just too big for him now and requires more minute dexterity.

For this solo, I just taught him sixteenth note triplets of bass-right-left and he could wail around the set.

Maybe in a year or so, he'll inherit my first Zen.

Sounds great!  My son has been bugging me about letting me play my ZX.  He just started playing one of my kits and has been doing well on the clarinet and soprano sax, He is getting ready to turn 11, so we will see what happens.

You must be so proud.
My daughter just did her Grade 7 French Horn exam, sings in the Australian Girls Choir and has no interest in anything percussive - despite being told by her choir conductor that she's a born percussionist. (That's after she was chosen to play the clave part to accompany the choir when they opened the Australian Pavilion at Expo in Shanghai.
The older daughter writes songs, sings, plays guitar and violin - but also has no interest in drumming. She doesn't even want me to drum on her recordings!
Tough life, isn't it?
