Default Re: the "how" thread

Music: initially, i paid a lot of attention to ac/dc, simple 4/4 stuff...raised on old rock and outlaw country into heavier rock, metal, and progressive as i gained exposure...

Drummer: phil rudd, no one plays 2 and 4 like him...then hair metal showed me showmanship (tommy lee, randy castillo, etc)

Person: an old boss i had...sold him an amp for my granddad, and he said get a drum kit and we'll jam...

Style: my own, mostly straight rock with a developing progressive approach...

Inspiration: definitely mike portnoy, for the range of sounds, the killer chops at any speed, and the down-to-earth guy he was when i met him at a clinic, and he never seems to stop learning...
