Re: Where to download or buy drum sheet music

Re: Interest loss.

It's great to practice, but three hours per day sounded like a lot. One can get tired of just about anything if one gets too much of it. Maybe if you took a break for a couple of weeks, and then...

Re: What is the difference of 3/4 and 6/8?
