Re: INTRODUCTIONS: Please Use This Thread To Introduce Yourself!
Hello everyone! :)

What style of music? My favorite styles are jazz, fusion and electronic music, but I am also into hip hop, funk, reggae, blues, pop, rock and metal. Also a bit of classical. I let all good music inspire me :)

One really odd fact about yourself? I hold a degree in computer engineering and I'm interested in artificial intelligence in computer games, but I'm not working a lot on it because I want to focus on music even more.
How did you start drumming? It was a random decision, to be honest. Kinda "hey, this looks like fun!" thing. My dad wanted me to learn the piano but I thought it would be boring - now I regret that decision and I want to take piano lessons in the near future, when I have more free time.
