1. As a beginner, is it better to have an instructer as opposed to learning from vids so as not to develop bad
2. Is 41 too old to start playing drums?
3. Is Jojos secret weapons, and Pat Petrillos hands/grooves/fills really for true beginners?
3. Can't vouch for Petrillo's work, but it would be better to use Jojo Mayer's DVD under the guidance of a teacher, it goes into a lot of technical detail
If you can't get a teacher, try 'Getting started on drums' by Tommy Igoe, he's an excellent instructor.
