We are back with Larnell Lewis! Our first episode dealt with Larnell ranking some facets of drumming in order of their importance and I think we all learned a lot from that one. Today though, we are dealing with something very different.

What happens when life gets in the way of your drumming? It happens to all of us. Even the pros. Larnell has had his fair share of interruptions and having to deal with balancing his professional career and the rest of his life. He shares some invaluable wisdom that struck a chord with me – not just when I interviewed him, but also today as I write this.

For those drummers out there who feel guilty for not feeling like they are spending enough time behind the kit, this one’s for you.

In this episode:

You will hear about…

  • Reaching your greatness and the balancing act that comes along with that
  • The importance of your brand
  • How interruptions in life happen and how we can keep the flame lit for our passion of drumming
  • Some final thoughts regarding today’s episode

Why you should listen:

When I connect with listeners they often say that they feel like they don’t play enough drums or that they feel as though that they should be better than they are. It seems to me that their lifestyle has other plans in store for them. Family, work, events, other interests, emergencies, health, stress, and so forth. This episode will help you.

I share a lot of my own personal thoughts too because like most of you, I am not a pro drummer. I love the drums but I honestly never felt like they were going to be my all. I just never could justify that. But there is always a big ol’ gushy spot in my heart for them and that will never die. I think y’all might connect with what I had to say as well.
