Akira Jimbo has slowly taken over. He plays mostly smooth jazz, so it’s not like I want to replicate his music. I just want to be able to do what he does. His facility on the drumkit is outstanding, but the melodic things he does are what I really want to move into these days. To this end, I picked up a DTXreme IIs module and am learning its ins and outs. It’s a tedious process, turning dials and figuring out what goes where but I think the end result will be something special. At the very least, it’s interesting when playing time on a kit just isn’t anymore.
