As always, a note-perfect and utterly mesmerising track from Paul. So full of atmosphere and with production values to die for. And, on this occasion, a bass line which damn near kicked my woofers out of their enclosures.

The title is deliberate. My shoulder problems mean I'm now losing control of the stick in my right hand. To say it's frustrating when something I've done for nearly thirty years proves difficult is an understatement. So I will have to put my sticks down whilst I see if I can get a physiotherapist on the case. I don't think it's permanent, thankfully.

I will add from time-to-time but I'm at the mercy of whether my shoulder will let me - it varies wildly every day now. This is all I could manage tonight.


No reverb on the HD drums.

kennyadrykennyadry Man! Did you play this thing having those shoulder problem? This is is a great take but try to rest it man! You can play all you want when your shoulder is in great condition again! We need you here, but we want you to get that shoulder fixed!

Thanks, Kenny. The shoulder pain is ever-present but every so often it causes my right hand to become 'vague' and control of my 4th and 5th fingers becomes difficult and my wrist also locks up too.

Last night was the first time it properly stopped me drumming well.

PaulBOwensPaulBOwens Yes Martin - now that's what I'm talking about! Your drumming is always so musical and lifts the music wonderfully. I hope your shoulder mends quickly.

Thanks, Oli. I'm getting a Dr appointment to get a referral to get physio. This has been an ever-increasing problem for me over the last year or so. Last night was the final straw!
