So here’s what I did: I wasn’t doing so well mentally, and I knew a little music would steer me back to where I wanted to be. I played a song, which doesn’t need mentioning, on YouTube, and let it roll. This was the third video that played. It made all the difference.
I sat and watched, listening to every word the singer sings, his love of the process so evident, the word painting of a rock and roll concert. When the full band kicked I began to play drums on the desk and continued to do so until it ended. I teared a little when the first back-up vocalist sang and was jubilant with the band at the end.
So, maybe, if you need and you have ten minutes…it might help.
