A Mile With Sorrow


Uploaded .

A 3 track improvisation on 7 congas roughly tuned by ear to a chromatic scale.

I walked a mile with Pleasure;
She chatted all the way;
But left me none the wiser
For all she had to say.

I walked a mile with Sorrow,
And ne’er a word said she;
But, oh! The things I learned from her,
When sorrow walked with me.

-Robert Browning Hamilton

If I could play drums like this my rhythm tracks would be much better. Enjoy just sitting back and listening to the many tones and varied rhythms.

Your sense of timing is unbelievable man. This is very infectious and cool grooving song. Drums as melodic structure, its very inspired.
