Re: HITTING CYMBALS FROM THE UNDERSIDE

Re: All the great drummers played for....

I'm weird, I guess.

I wanna learn bebop

Alright, up until this point, my specialty has really been the sort of choppy, funky, jojo mayer/johnny rabb/squarepusher style breakbeats, right? That's all delightful, and it works well in the...

Re: How close are you to your Dream Kit?

I am NOWHERE NEAR my current dream kit XD

I need to get a job, etc etc... But, I swear, once I finally get that kit, it will be the envy of the entire world.

And it will have no tom-toms.
