There's a football field pretty close to my home and I find hearing the marching band practice to be rather enjoyable except for one thing: I'm about to MURDER the woodblock player!!!
Seriously! I don't know what wood species that damn thing is made out of, but I'm tempted to see if I could get a whole guitar made out of the same stuff, 'cause that sh!t is LOUD! All day it's; "Bonk, bonk,..bonk,.bonk,bonk,..bonk." How is that thing louder than an entire drum-line-brass horn-marching band?! Did they come up with the electric woodblock while I was passed out at the pool?
Man, I'm all about music in schools, and I love seeing youngsters learn a new musical instrument... but Dude! Play On Time! I feel like there is a spastic woodpecker slowly dropping water droplets on my forehead! There is no repetitive tempo to block out or even groove along with! If it's only for band practice, than I assume it must be the music teacher or coach doing it, so I assume again that he/she has a degree to teach music... WHY!?!?!
I must have two or three old drum machines in my moms basement, what's the most tactful way to donate a metronome, AND get to smash that woodblock!?... preferably without any legal repercussions.
