You have relationships with people, places, and things. There are the relationships you have with your friends, classmates, relatives and co-workers. You have a relationship with your home or apartment; your work site; your favourite club, bar, or restaurant; and, you have a relationship with your drums. All you need do is read and absorb the philosophies and stories contained within this book, work with the strategies and techniques, and you will overcome those barriers that have been holding you back from enjoying your optimum relationship with your drumming.
