Confession; I have no musical ability .... none .... can't sing, I'm tone deaf, can't play a musical instrument (well maybe I can handle the kazoo), many times I'm tapping my feet completely out of time with the music ..... You get the idea.
I do love the sound of a good drum line. When my kids were in the high school marching band, the drum section would lead the band onto the field, drumming out a cadence ... nothing more stirring.
You would think Americans with their obsession on American football games and attendant marching bands would dominate drum line but here is the Swiss Drum Corps "Top Secret" playing in Edinburgh, Scotland. Just drums and flags. Wow!
