It seems to be the only ongoing thing in town, and I notice you have met recently. That's promising.
It no longer hurts my hands, but I like big circles, so if I get off beat for a while, I won't mess the others up.
I have never seen rhythms on paper. That might work, but I just like to listen for it.
If there are enough drums to cover for my slips.
I need a circle where I can catch the beat best I can on my own. I don't take instruction well & get worse when singled out. In a huge drum circle w/ hundreds of people, big drums give the bronchials a real work out & cure my asthma for a few days.
If you have even a slight interest in drumming, you should give it a try. And there are a few drums and other percussion instruments if you come without any. The company is good, and this could build quickly into a good regular circle. The therapeutic effects of drumming are huge and stress releaving. The people in this circle are just nice folks not &amp;#034;performers.&amp;#034; The spirit here is truly community drumming, with a range of ages from little kids to twenties to late sixties or seventies.
