Three minutes.  We have a sand timer in the classroom that runs out at three minutes.  It doesn’t seem like a long time.  But this three minutes is almost a year in the making.  The beat isn’t difficult.  No fancy fills.  Just short crash on the cymbal.  Five days from now, this three minutes will be behind me and I can say I was the drummer on that song.  Three minutes.  It will be a good story to look back on.
