Waiting for cymbals (Part 2)

Oh, no! Unfortunately, I've received bad news about my cymbals. It seems like the German shop where I've ordered my dear order is moving to a new place... And... As they say, I have to wait more than the expected.

Yeah, I just write "wait + more"!!!!!!!!! Perfect.......

29th June, Saint Peter

Today is 29th June, Saint Peter's day. If I am right today is my holy day.

When you grow up, days like today are each time less important. The best is that these days are less important for you and for the others, so no problem with that. Even so there are some people who congratulate you although they know today isn't an important day (thanks to those people). It's a nice feeling.

I think that I'm growing up.

Waiting for cymbals

Two weeks ago, I was sad. My drum kit, better said, my cymbals have a detestable sound. I was worried for the quality of the sound of the band. It was not good and that was not well because the sound was prejudicial. Fortunately I thought in a good friend who lent me his cymbal for the concert.

Last weekend, I saw a little rock band which I had seen before (I wrote about that some days ago). I looked to the drummer during some time and I thought that he played better than the last time. I realized that he had a lot of cymbals and he used them a lot (I realized I don't do that). Then I decided that it was the moment to spend some money.

Today, It has been ordered a new cymbals set. I know that they aren't the best cymbals, but I'm completely sure that they will be better than the mine ones. So I'm waiting for cymbals.

The start of the important rehearsals

This afternoon I've had to rehearse with my town's band. I've liked this rehearsal because a lot of people have assisted. When this happens, the conductor is happier and more perfectionist, then he works better. A full rehearsal room is a good reason to go to rehearse and everyone feel better with a lot of partners because you have the feeling that you are spending your time in something profitable. Besides, in the rehearsal there are some people with important music careers, professionals, with who you can realize that a better sounds are played. Personally, for me,  I think today is the start of the important rehearsals until the concert's day.

Music for Sunday night #5

This is a song very exciting. I usually listen it when I feel tired because It gives you energy.

Today is Saint John's day. I, like a component of my town's band, have had to go to the procession celebrated in his honour. I didn't feel like going but it was a commitment. The members of the band aren't very motivated and a lot of people didn't assist because of this we didn't have a good appearance. The procession had a lot of stairs and slopes because the route where we walked was an old neighbourhood. The weather wasn't fortunately too hot and we are more comfortable than the last year.

But don't mind, it's the hard life of the musician.

Today I've composed a new instrumental song. I'm happy because of this. The song is called "Animals". It is about... Animals. It consist in five parts. The first is called "Lions are the kings" and is a quiet part. The second is called "Orange birds", this part is a bit faster than the previous. The next part's name is "When elephants come", it is a part very similar to the preceding but with a stronger melody. The fourth part is called "Bears can be fast", it is clearly faster than the others parts and it's my favourite. The last one part is called "When lions come back", and it's like the first part but a bit faster.

The song is now available in Goear:

Remember that you can listen more of my song in my website:

The great day

When the countdown finished, we are just in the backstage. We could hear "The ecstasy of gold, by Ennio Morricone". The public was excited. Everybody shouted. Then I left the backstage and appeared in the end of our stage. Shouts were louder. After me, our bassist appeared and later the others partners.

After a fast adjustment "Enter Sadman" flowed from the stage. I was sure that the first impression was the greatest. Later a lot of songs were played by us. In the middle of the concert, two of our friends received a "happy birthday" played by us.

When the concert finished all the members of the band felt like the happiest people in the high school. All were proud. All were rock stars for a moment.

Countdown is enabled

The countdown is working some time ago. When it finishes, five of us will show to the world (or to the high school) our talent.

At bottom I know that I am a lucky drummer because I feel sure of myself on that aspect and I'm happy because it. I hope my personal confidence saves me of the nerves.

Doing a review over these days we've rehearsed a lot, we've had to get the necessary equipment, which has been a bit hard, we've played loud therefore, a member of the band has been scolded...And a lot of things more. So we can only wait.

I'm sure it will be great!

Now, let's observe the countdown:

Music for Sunday night #4

Today, I show you an amazing song by Metallica. Let's sing!

Preparations for the concert

This afternoon, I and the majority of components of my rock band have prepared everything necessary for the concert. I am surprised because the space necessary for the machines. But it's totally normal because we need a lot of amplifiers, speakers, stands, cables... All it is amazing, but I've realized there is no turning back.

Technology project = proud

I'm excited about the technology project. Until yesterday morning, it was a disaster. Today my opinion about it has totally changed. This morning, after some improves in the school the car already could work. Later I decided to try to connect a battery to the car and... It worked!!! It was AMAZING!!! The car was the fastest of the class, better than my friend' ones. So I was so happy that I told I was proud of it.

Technology project = headache

I don't know why but I feel very tired...

All has started this morning. I and my technology partner went to technology class. We, like usually, have taught our project (a car) and we've begun to work. On the one hand the transmission doesn't work because the engine wasn't so powerful as we think. So the car stayed stopped. On the other hand the car wheels were too little separated from the floor... So @#5987qwrenlñkeuqe (I don't know how to curse in English yet).

In the same morning, my technology teacher told me something like this "The method to work in our country is build something without think and after solve the problems, so in the end our works are disasters".

Later in my house, I was going to try to save the car of a fail. Then I've thought about those words and I've decided to do a good work. So after almost three hours of hard work, I've finished of solve the problems why tomorrow we will be able to follow normally.

The end of the exams!!!

The another thing why I am happy is that today I've finished all my exams!!! I will celebrate it with a good song:


Successful concert

I'm quite happy for several things. Now, I'm speaking about the concert where I play this afternoon. In principle everything had been good, or at least looked like good. Firstly, I and a pianist played a song quite good. Secondly, we played a latin song where we had to improvise, it also was a good song. Finally, I and the young band played three songs. The best song was the last one because the conductor indicated me that I had to play rather loud for the drum kit sounded specially good. So for me there was no problems!!! Then, when the conductor indicated us the start of the song I began to play really good!!! I really liked that moment, it was so fun! In the end of the song I was happy and any people of the band were indifferent.

Friday audition

I've thought about the Friday audition, and I realized that tomorrow it will be a bit hard day. Firstly, before the audition, in the high school, I will have to do two exams (physical and English), after in the afternoon...

Tomorrow in the afternoon I will have to play drums in several groups. Firstly I play a samba with latin percussion, with my drums partners. After I will play a song for piano accompanied by me. Finally I will play three songs with the young band of my town.

I've begun to think that I have a busy life, and I don't like it to much.

A concert poster

In the same way that yesterday, I already think that the concert is near. So we, the components of the band thought that we should advertise because only a few friends know about our debut. With that intention I've had to run one of my favourite old computer programs, my old friend Photoshop, to design a poster. In the end, the poster has been very beautiful... And I'm proud of it.

The day is near

I was listening to a friend when I realised that there are no more rehearsals to "the day". I wasn't very worried because I hadn't thought that so much, but now it's different. There is not much time and there are a lot of small fails to be checked. I'm sure in the end all will be great!

Timetable changes

I usually go to English classes on Mondays. That isn't the better of the week but I know it's good for me. The next two weeks my English teacher has some free time on Wednesday. She's offered me to go to class on Wednesdays too for an hour. I haven't be able to refused because the cost of the classes is quite high and I always must try to take advantage of the greatest possible time. The problem is that the English class coincide with my band rehearsal, so I am not too happy.

Bad pianist

This afternoon I had to take time from my busy life to go to rehearse with a pianist for a performance. This one will be the next Friday. When I've arrived I've started to play very good, but there was a problem, the LAZY pianist hadn't done her homework. He couldn't play anything because He hadn't studied anything. Both my drums teacher like me were a bit angry.

Later, in the end of the rehearsal, my drums teacher phoned the piano teacher and she scolded the lazy pianist. It has been just.

Visit to the hairdresser

This night I'm sleeping with less hair. I think that the reason of this has been my visit to the hairdresser, but I'm not sure. That guy is quite young, friendly and also he's faster than others. So, I don't think that I change it. The hairdresser's is a rather new place with new furniture too. There, there are a very comfortable armchairs so it's a place very nice.

Warning: When you go to the hairdresser's you never try to read the magazines. Don't lose your time! Those pages are ALWAYS outdated and are ALWAYS the same.

Wednesday rehearsal

The last rehearsal of the week with my band has been this afternoon. We've assisted all the components except one. The rehearsal has been quite good and hard because the heat. The concert is soon and we have to practice harder.

I liked the rehearsal, it has been a lot of things: solos, accompaniments, laughter, public... and a girl that she seemed not too happy. I will find out why.

Maths exam review

Thanks to my friends my maths exam has been changed to tomorrow because the majority of my friends hasn't studied. Right now my teacher is explaining the lesson. I've decided to not pay attention because I spent all my last afternoon studying.

So I have got a keyboard in my hands instead a calculator.
