Hi all,

Just a quick introduction. My name's Lisa, I'm new here and also new to drumming - VERY new. I had my first lesson 3 days ago and today I'm getting my drumkit. I've wanted to play for 20 years, and now at 34, I'm finally doing it!

A bit about me - I live in Sydney, Australia, and proud owner of a husband and 3 small children aged 7, 4 and almost 1. So I figure the drumming is going to be a great stress relief for me too!

one really odd fact about yourself? I'm a hardcore agnostic libertarian... not really "odd"

how did you start drumming?

To answer this question, I'll start back in 6th grade. We had to take these little "hearing" tests to see if we were "inclined" towards musical instruments. I wanted to play the drums. I got to learn the trumpet for about a year. I had just gotten braces and it was painful to even play trumpet. Fast forward a few years and I saw a high school friend playing and he was amazing. fast forward a couple more years and I saw a clip of D.J. Bonebrake tapping out three different timings - his foot doing 4/4, his hand tapping out 3/4 and he added another timing to his other hand and it just blew my mind.

Fast forward a couple more years, 28 now, and I found a band who I want to put out a CD for. Their biggest problem? No drummers! Not that there are no drummers but very few that have the skill they are looking for. So as I'm getting into putting out a CD for this band, I'm thinking, I can still do this - I can afford a set and some lessons, why not? What sealed the deal was getting to talk and see a drummer named John from Chicago who was filling in for Gene of Evil Bever while Gene was on tour with the Eagles of Death Metal. I talked to John a bit and he didn't look at me like I was crazy for wanting to pick it up so "late" in life (although I see there are people who have started later!). We talked about some different drum sets and he just said "man, you should do it." It was his enthusiasm and just the enjoyment he got out of playing that has inspired me so far.

Default Just introducing myself...

Hey all,


Music- The bands that i probably listen to the most, and inspired me the most to play drums are The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Dave Matthews Band, Foo Fighters, Led Zeppelin, Weezer, Green Day

Drummer- In all honesty the drummer who inspired me to drum when i was a little kid was the guy from Rammestein, yes ok, i understand its not the most romantic story, but its the truth

Person- No person that i personally know got me into drums, although my family helped me pay for drumset and i am forever thanking them

Style- I love playing drums to... well... really any music i can get my hands on, all those bands in the "Music" section i love to drum along with, but when it comes to DMB or Led Zeppelin, it's more of an attempt than actually playing with, but i try

Inspirations- My number one goal to being a drummer is basically to be Carter Beauford/Mitch Mitchell/Chad Smith/Buddy Rich/John Bonham/ Keith Moon/John Dolmayan ALLLL rolled into one...
