How can you easily spot a musician when he is not performing on stage? You can’t, in my opinion. Unless you see or hear him sing or play an instrument.
But my neighbor’s case is different. I manage to guess his work without meeting him. He is a drummer, I told myself, when one sunny day with our door open, I heard someone playing his electric drum set without fault. I think that was one of the best electric drum set being played that I’ve heard in a long time. Because I’m a musician (retired singer/bass player) myself, I know a professional when I hear one.
I sometimes miss performing when I hear my neighbor play. We actually have two drummers in the neighborhood also both of them play the guitar – one acoustic while the other electric. Sometimes I also hear a girl singing along while one plays guitar.
It’s quite nice to be surrounded with musicians, it made me smile
