Drumming and Cannabis

There is something appealing to the raw side of our nature through drumming. Kids love to drum because they get to pound on something as hard as they can and their parents are not giving them heck for it. It is a great workout, you can get a good sweat worked up doing drumming. It is not only strength you need but stamina as well. And control. Drumming and cannabis go together in a very natural way. You are able to feel the music you are creating on a more subtle plane. You will hear and feel things in your drum or percussion instrument when you are in sync with the other players and it is also a great instrument to use as a solo. Not everyone can do a solo on a drum, but everyone can play a drum - solo. The healing comes when you are part of the group. Sound is power. It can be measured and it can be extremely powerful. Take a gander at the sound cannons they will be using at the G-8 and G-20 meetings. All that is is sound put out at extreme levels(damaging levels). A group of drummers will not get that loud but they can grow much stronger than an instrument meant to do damage. The group acting together is what makes the great music and the healing vibration. As a solo work, the drum is a great tool for doing a "moving meditation". drums have a very earthy nature to them. To some the drum music is a sexual stimulator. As a male drummer, I have seen both men and women dance to the drums. Every single time, the women dance much more suggestively than men. Cannabis is also said to act as an aphrodisiac on women and it helps relax men so that could help a bit to get "in the mood". The earthy nature of both compliment each other and re-inforce each other's effects.

I would like to hear what you have experienced.
