Read your profile. Welcome to another Florida drummer and thanks for your time in Iraq. chin up and head down. One thing you will need is patience. the best thing I can tell you is to start slow and then add speed to whatever rudiments you are practicing. See you soon.

Hey man, welcome again to the forum. I'd say get your rudiments down and maybe to get a steady meter try and keep time on your practice pad along with some of your favorite cd's or something. That helped me alot when I started out. Take Care

Hey Lumpy,

Welcome to the forum.
My best advice to you is to get with a teacher. If you're in school, check out their music program and see what they offer.
If school's a bust, teachers can be found at most music stores.
They can fill you in on everything you need to know.

I'm going to echo the "get an instructor" suggestion. Welcome to the forums.

welcome to the drumming family lumpydrum.

i like a good echo. and its an echo because its the best advice anyone can give to a new player. great to see you've found one.


noodling with youtube can be handy too in finding some videos covering basic hand and foot technique to help you start out.

playing drums is a such a joy, good luck with your music.
