Drumming practice update:

Last night's Tuesday  Samba drumming session was prefaced by an email announcing an end-of-term performance - a bit like a school show. It'll take place late at night in a couple of weeks time on the south side of Glasgow.

Thus the pad acts as a monitor or test-bed for me to develop control over my left hand.
