how did you start drumming? I used to drum every now and then in a gospel church when I was young, but I'd say I really started in about grade 10 (5 years ago) when my friend showed me Dream Theater. I was blown away at the whole time signature deal and just ran with that. We formed a prog rock original band and played some DT covers and stuff and it really improved my playing.
