A Most Difficult Thing to Do

Donald Byrd

SKF NOTE: Playing straight time well, with good tone and feeling is good advice for drummers too.

Donald Byrd once said, “After all these years of playing, I’ve come to the conclusion that one of the most difficult things to do is play a melody straight and play it well, with good tone and feeling.”
