Re: Back at it at 56 years old

I can't take credit for inventing this idea, but it sure worked for me.

Re: Back at it at 56 years old

Lynchie:

Have you tried the logic on the bride that drums are a much better "midlife crisis" than buying a Harley, or taking up skydiving?

Even really great drums are cheaper than a scooter,...

Re: What to expect from a drum lesson?

Well, Lynchie, sound like you gave it a good shot. Sounds like you need to find a different teacher. Still, I wouldn't give up on it, and you're getting me to think that I need to find a teacher,...

aaajn:

I keep getting that reaction from people, too.

But for me, think it was Brain Salad Surgery.

You point of elder learning is right on. After I retired from the Army, I got into public...

Re: Back at it at 56 years old

You want a mobile kit? The walker idea isn't bad, but if you put the bass on you back, and cymbals between the knees, than you could do the one man band trick a la in Mary Poppins. Guess you have...

Re: Where do you put your drums?/Practise rooms

I'm one of the lucky ones. I've got a great place for my new kit.

I've got a log home, in the middle of an acreage, halfway up the side of a Georgia "mountain". (least that what they call them...

Re: What to expect from a drum lesson?

We're rooting for you. Lynchie. From the looks of another thread or two I've seen here, seems like there's quite a few of us older guys in various stages of wanting to get back into drumming.

Re: Back at it at 56 years old

I'm relatively new here, but in the few weeks I've been watching, I'm really encouraged by seeing all these posts from the 40-somethings and 50-somethings getting back into it.

I'm 54, and I...

Re: Throne setup

My throne is 27.5 in high, but I'm 6'6'. I followed the conventional wisdom of setting it that high so my thighs slope down just a bit. The trick is to concentrate on good posture and figure what...

Re: What to expect from a drum lesson?

So, Lynchie, have you decided on your next move yet? I'm curious to hear how all of this turns out.

Re: Beginner, could you guys help me out?

I lost 30 years of playing between high school band and getting back into it. Wish now that I'd bought a kit years ago. Now, at the ripe age of 54, I got a kit, and I'm back into it.

Best...

jeffwj:

I'm sorry, I meant no disrespect.

I'd expect that you, a professional, could do that. I teach map reading and high angle rope rescue techniques to a search and rescue team, where the...

Re: What to expect from a drum lesson?

Interesting point to consider.

I'd expect to pay for a first lesson, assuming it was a real lesson.

But as a part-time contractor, I don't charge for giving potential clients an estimate...

Re: What to expect from a drum lesson?

Works for me.

I'm really new to the forum, but so far, I've found quite a bit of help here, and not nearly the amount of "idle stuff , flaming, or childlike behavior" as I've seen on other...

Re: What to expect from a drum lesson?

After reading the posts, a couple things came to me:

Not every good drummer will be a good teacher.

You might find a otherwise good teacher that you simply don't get along with. This could...

Re: New Member - 45 yr. old wants to play!

Welcome to the same boat. I'm 54, and just bought a set of exports- to get back to drumming after not playing since high school. I'm additionally challenged by being very tall, and left handed. (...
