Re: Taking up piano
I went vice verse: I've played keys on and off for the last 20 years and started playing drums a couple of years ago. I think playing more than 1 instrument makes you grow as a musician and will also benefit playing your main instrument.
Try to hang in there, I learned playing keys (as well as drums, BTW) by myself and it can take time but it is rewarding when you can nail the tunes or songs you want.
A kit: Gretsch Renown
E kit: TD-9KX
Masterwork cymbals...Guru snares
