one really odd fact about yourself? I still think of myself as a teenager lol
how did you start drumming? Have wanted to play for 20 years, but long story short, I got a pair of these electronic "rock beat" sticks for Mother's Day - and I whinged about how much I wish I could learn the drums - so hubby told me to go have lessons, and we managed to squeeze a drumkit into our already overcrowded house.

Default Re: Introduce Yourself

It was only inevitable that I'd join some major drum fourm. Glad to be here, now on with the introductions!

real name? Albert Francis Gabriel Calamita
age? 17 (18 in a few weeks)
how long been playing? Started when I was 7, phased out over the years but got back into it about a year ago, and intend to stay dedicated this time.
origin of user name? I usually go with something else for a fourm, but decided to go with something new. Obviously its a play on my name - people at school and some friends tend to refer to me as "Big Al" (even though I am rather skinny) and Cal is a semi-common nickname for males in my family.
top 5 drummers? Off the top of my head...John Bonham, Don Henley, Rick Allen, Tommy Lee, Buddy Rich
make of drumkit? 5 piece Tama Swingstar
make of cymbal? Sabian B8 (13" hi-hat, 14" crash, 18" ride. I have a 16" crash as well but I need another stand)
where do you practice? In my room.
are you in a band/s? Not right now.
covers or originals? Both
what style of music? Rock, Blues, and a little Jazz
favourite take out food? Chinese Chicken
country? USA
one really odd fact about yourself? I use Vic Firth sticks, with Ahead grip tape while wearing Vater gloves (dont know if that counts, but oh well =P)
how did you start drumming? I'm not sure what exactly inspired me. I was raised on rock and roll (both my parents are big classic rock fans, and my dad would always play songs on his acoustic guitar by The Eagles, Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton, Bob Seger, etc and even wrote a song or two I think... He's a very good guitarist) and though I never atteneded any real concerts when I was a kid I do remember after watching music videos and listening to songs on the radio I had a fasciation with the "big loud instrument".... I then started taking lessons..
