    How to play rudiments faster.

    I'll go ahead and admit I've been neglecting my drum pad for a little while, and I've just started getting back on it. Don't smite me. ;--; Now, all I need to find out is how to play rudiments faster, besides constant practice. I can only bring them up to a slow, pitiful bpm before I lose my...

    Equip this poor newbie?

    Alright, now I'm just looking for a little advice on picking out a first drum kit. Currently saving up for a used kit, so I have little control over what I'm going to get, but I'd like a good idea of what to look for. I don't want a starter's kit, since I hear that drummers outgrow them really...

    Help improve my crappy hand coordination?

    Alrighty. I just started drumming the other day. All I have so far is my dad's old sticks and a shiny new Vic Firth rubber practice pad, since I have to save up every penny for the kit. So here I am learning the 40 drum rudiments. I'm doing the single stroke roll, and I'm a leftie (though I...

    Singing Drummers?

    I've recently taken to my singing voice (I doubt it's good yet, but at least I can sing), and I was thinking about being a drummer AND lead vocalist if I ever decided to go for a musical career. Thing is, I've never heard of any singing drummers. If you know any, could you recommend them? That...
