Default Re: First song you played along with on drums?

A VERY interesting story behind this one.

My first "real" drum set (an OLD 4 piece Gretsch Blue Sparkle) came with a 45 RPM vinyl that was recorded with the ACTUAL drum kit I was purchasing. The seller's son was the drummer on the record and gave up the drums and went off to college leaving the set behind at his parent's house.

I was fascinated with this fact and promptly sat down at the kit and practiced the song over and over until I learned it note for note....with the original kit.

Surprisingly, just for kicks, I looked it up on Youtube (not expecting anything) only to find THIS!!!

I swear, the internet has EVERYTHING!!!!!!!
