Perhaps you could use a little fatherly advice? Well here it is!

Chording improvisation on 7 different conga drums tuned to an octave and set to 3-2 rumba clave.

LYRICS
Lookie here hot-shot: a silent fool is half a wise-man
And there’s a difference between pain and suffering.
If you bring her to the party, you gotta dance with her,
Even if she’s not worth the powder it would take to blow her up.

Between the saddle and the ground,
Mercy sought: Mercy found.
Your applause is his only reward.

Even a blind hog finds an acorn once in awhile,
But you can’t hit it unless you put the bead right on it.
People come into this world just like they go out of it, but Grace is a powerful thing…don’t you forget that.
And if a scrawny scared west Kansas farm kid doesn’t flunk out fast, the world is his oyster.

Between the saddle and the ground,
Mercy sought: Mercy found.
Hang in there kid.

Thanks Dad!

Well now ,home spun wisdom and a drum accompaniement….more than you could have asked for.

However “Chording improvisation on 7 different conga drums tuned to an octave and set to 3-2 rumba clave.” may as well have been written in mandarin for all that I understood of it !!

Cheers

Jarvo.
