My name's Adam. I used to play drums all day long in high school. I spent a bunch of years living in college dorms and small apartments and didn't have a good place to play. So now, shortly after my 10 year high school reunion, I bought an old gretsch blackhawk kit off craigslist for $150. I set them up in the spare bedroom and I'm trying to get my chops back. I started recording my playing just too see what it looked like, then decided to post some of the video's on youtube just to add to the pool of homemade drum video's - hoping they might cause someone to think a little differently or try something new.
Here's a link
I like watching other people play and trying some of their tricks. Feel free to check out my youtube channel and post responses.
Please offer suggestions on how I might improve my playing and please let me know if you enjoy any particular part of what i'm putting out there.
