I also am curious as how you get along on the drums with your disability.
I can imagine being partially or completely deaf would definately be a struggle at points.
The fact are back playing again, is great. Hopefully you continue.
You could use a computer and loop someone playing dig, or find a dedicated player.
You could theoretically be your own band with samples, MIDI and whatever for a while UNTIL you find other players....
Just a thought.
I went for almost a year of not playing before I started having problems with depression due to not playing, and the anxiety of never palying again. The first tent imes, maybe, I thought about how much REWORK was needing to be "back in shape"
Get past that, and you'll be right as rain.
Your an inspiration , being a drummer, and deaf. Hats off to you.
