Re: If you were just starting to learn how to play today..

Get a qualified teacher.

Develop good practice habits.

Study your technique diligently, but have fun in the process.

If you get bored, swap your kit to LH. : )

In Christ Alone....HELP!!!

For the life of me, I can't feel where the downbeat is supposed to be in the verse..if 3/4, it's sometimes on three, sometimes on two...depending on how you count it.

The chorus is 6/8, I think. ...

Re: MAPEX SATURN -> Studio Tuning??? HELP!

Super-2 is a thin, 2 ply head by Aquarian.

Note that I said coated in my examples, lol. The clears are good for live playing but ring a bit much for recording for my taste.

Classic.

I'm hoping to get a patent on the left-handed HH stand. A lot of time and money, though.
