8 months

After 8 months you would think I could play a decent slap. A distinctive tone. A bass that doesn't wobble.

But nope.

Now that I can hear them on the recordings, I am painfully aware that I can't do it. I hear them teasing me from Sidy's drum: Slap, here, sister. Tone there. Hear how it sings when you do it right?

Yeah, I hear it. I can hear it.

But damn. I can't play it.

I can't play it, but I love that I can hear it.
