Re: INTRODUCTIONS: Please Use This Thread To Introduce Yourself!
Real name: Jeremiah Ruedger
How long have you been playing: About 3 years. Only about six months ago did I get a drum set.
Origin of user name: My first and middle initials are J.D. and there is a youtube video featuring some kid who calls himself jdizzle. So it kind of fits with me. That and "bullfrog" is just too cliche.
Your top 5 drummers: I'd have to say Jeff Campitelli, Chad Smith, Neil Peart, Mitch Mitchell, and Steve Gadd.
Make of drumkit: Gretsch Catalina Maple.
Make of cymbal: Zildjian ZHT box set and an A splash.
Where do you practice: At my friends house for two reasons. One is that there is no room at my place and he has a music room.
Are you in a band: Yes. We were originally called Next Day Air, but we're currently changing names to something else.
Do you play covers or originals: Mostly covers, but came out with an original and are trying to do some more.
What style of music: Rock, blues, and some funk.
Favourite take out food: I usually don't do take out.
What country do you live in: United States
One really odd fact about yourself: I'm not really into sports, especially college sports.
How did you start drumming: When I was in 7th grade a few of my percussionist friends taught me how to play a swing beat and I loved it. Then, two years after that I started playing for my church, and now I play at church and in my band.
