Hey everyone,

Name is John. I'm a 53 yo drummer. Been playing since I was 13. Spent my early years in bands doing original material back in NYC. Stopped playing for about 15 years and just picked it up again about 5 years ago. Not currently in any band. Time used to be the problem there but as I get older, and the kids are off in school, I find I might have the time it takes. Just don't know if I still have the chops. Right now I play on an Acoustic/Electric conversion kit that I made myself out of an old Tama set. I used a Yamaha DTX head. I built my own triggers using piezo pick-ups and mesh heads on the drums. Did the same with plastic practice cymbals. Seems to work pretty well. I've downloaded a lot of songs minus drum track and I play along. Made a couple of videos of this to see if I sound ok. Since I am probably my harshest critic I thought I would post them on here and see what other drummers think. Not sure if this is the right place but I'll put one up here for now.

Any feedback would be appreciated
