Yes that's right i've decided to add drumming to a long list of things i can't do. I'm going to keep them though.
DO NOT QUIT THE DRUMS!!!!! No, no, no.
LOL Give Eddie a break, Bob. The poor guy wants to pretend he has a life before he realises that, as a drummer, it's ultimately not possible.
Hey, It always worked for me!LOL Give Eddie a break, Bob. The poor guy wants to pretend he has a life before he realises that, as a drummer, it's ultimately not possible.
That video would actually turn me off - the plethora of highly skilled professionals performing the unattainable just makes the humble hobbyist with modest technique feel like s/he would just clutter up a scene that's already saturated with nimble brilliance to bursting point.
This is the more the kind of thing that would tempt me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n-spAA9aLN0
Simple stuff with a great vibe. That's the lure for me ...
Of which I'm also one. I agree with all posts so far Ed. Whilst I never 'quit' as such, I did walk away from it 'cos I wanted a break....unfotunately that break lasted about 5 years. Man, do I regret that now. Life circumstances have changed and I doubt I'll ever go back to working as regularly as I was, but my kit has called me back.....even if only as a hobbyist!This forum is littered with "ex players" who couldn't kick the habit.
Two mottos to the story:
1. There is no escape. Don't even pretend.
2. Don't even consider selling your drums during this break. It will cost you - 100% guarantee
Bob, We normally scrub up best at the wedding so I'd go for a wedding shot. When today is too hard there's nothing wrong with THIS.OK Polly, Pic of my wife you say! Here she is! Isn't she lovely!
This is what she looks like when I come home with a new whatever for my kits!
