Well he doesn't play like YOU play. He can keep a steady beat, but he really doesn't yet understand 8 bar phrasing and simple stuff like coming back to ONE, yet.
He seems to be more into guitar than drums, which I encourage. Reading and playing music can only help, if he wants to drum later ( I played violine for 6 years before playing drums).
As for Yamaha, I just sold a Stage Custom kit (which was really good for the money) and got a new Beech Custom kit with a Maple Custom Absolute kick (best bass drum sound ever!!!).
I'll post some pics in October, when I get to England with my new wife and my new kit!
