Default Re: INTRODUCTIONS: Please Use This Thread To Introduce Yourself!

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.
