Re: 1 month on my own

Thanks for the tip. This is definitely not the only thing I do for practice. Usually play alongs are the last part of what I do on any given day. I also spend at least an hour or two a day on my...

Re: Gavin Harrison here!

A friend of mine posted this question on your Facebook page but I thought I'd ask here as well.

Value of playing simple beats over and over?

Just wanted to get some input here. I've been playing drums for less than a month now.

Re: Reviews/Comments-On Tommy Igoe's New DVD Great Hands For Life

For a true beginner, like myself, I think Tommy doing a demo for all the rudiments is invaluable. Of course I'm only speaking as a novice but, from what I can tell, there seems to be great value in...

Re: Newbie's high hat foot

I'm fairly high with legs at about a 90 degree angle with my weight in the throne. I'm very careful not to lean forward or put unneeded weight on my feet. I always feel balanced in my seat. I...
