This article's been around for a few weeks but I haven't seen anyone post it. https://www.psychologytoday.com/blo...3/10-ways-musical-training-boosts-brain-power (I loved the Einstein quote! Einstein once said, "Life without playing music is inconceivable to me. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music ... I get most joy in life out of music.") This article, along with a truly amazing previous post on your brain playing an instrument (http://www.thegearpage.net/board/showthread.php?t=1506568 - Link at: http://trendinghot.net/what-playing-a-musical-instrument-does-to-your-brain/), sure makes a good case for playing an instrument. My only question is, does it apply to drummers?!
