Re: The "how" thread
Music- Led Zeppelin, Lynyrd Skynyrd, eventually Miles Davis, who led me to a whole new world of music, too much I can't list all of them.
Drummer- 1. My first drum teachers, Ross Johnson and Garrett Heinz
Person- My Parents!
Style- Jazz is what keeps me workin in town! And it is my favorite, but I also love Praise and Worship Music and I want to play more of the jazz/rock for gigs instead of just in my basement.
Inspirations- Steve Smith, what a mastefull drummer, his DVD totally changed my drumming life. THANK YOU! Also all of the old records with Tony Williams, Blakey, Jo Jones, Elvin Jones, etc..... Of course my current instructor on drum set, Chuck Case. Another inspiration is getting gigs in town, that keeps me going pretty hard!
