Default Re: the "how" thread

Music- The Beatles.The first band I really loved (I'm sure I'm not alone).Led Zeppelin, natch
Drummer- Ringo got me into drums , Bonham and Buddy miles made me love the drums.
Person- My dad. He played drums in his youth , doing the Shadows covers.He also taught
me how to play the basics.
Styles- anything with a groovy fat beat.I love playing in the pocket.Mostly tho I play rock ,
funk , and folk.
Inspirations- Seeing and hearing great drummers present and past , especially the ones with
fat pockets and buckets of soul. This means that drummers that inspire me
don't necessarily need to have technical chops.Technical drummers are
everywhere , drummers with soul are a rarity.
