how did you start drumming? I saw George Thorogood & The Destroyers with Clarence Clemons on saxophone. I decided sax was super cool, so I started playing in the school band. The saxophones all sat up front while the percussionists were in the back goofing off and having fun. Well..."Hot Cross Buns" on sax wasn't nearly Clarence Clemons cool, so I opted for fun and switched to percussion. A great decision on my part. ;)
didnt kno anyone famous had my surname. well , apparently there was a jockey cakked joe canty. must find out more!

Default Greetings from Chicago, IL

Hello everybody! I've been a drummerworld.com guy for awhile - a great site. I noticed a few weeks back that there's a forum now, cool!

I'm a mid 30's guy, living in Chicago (logan square area). I play in a band called Jazz Conpiracy, and get calls for other gigs every so often too. By day (when I'm not practicing...), I pay the bills by operating as a freelance web developer. I have my own drumming site in the works.

Gear-wise, I play Gretsch Customs most of the time (18, 14, 12) with a 14" hammered Gretch brass snare. Cymbals are a mix of Zildjian and Istanbul - thin and dark. I have a Meinl Dragon Profile Ride that I whip out occationally too.

Cheers folks!

Welcome, stoptime!

Great to hear from somebody from Chi-town. I live out in the western burbs, but work downtown.(I'm a copywriter during the day to pay the billz.) I play in a band named The Crown Vics and sub for The Rhythm Rockets. I've definitely heard of Jazz Conspiracy, before—cool!

Have you been down to Steve Maxwell Pro Percussion on Michigan Ave? It's a great store / museum for vintage and custom drums. They specialize in Gretsch, so you'd really dig it.

You can check 'em out here:

http://www.maxwelldrums.com/

Anyway, welcome once again. And who knows? Maybe we'll bump into each other sometime!

Oh man... Maxwell's is a candy store for jazzers and guys from the CSO, I've picked up 2 Gretsch kits from there and am on a first name basis with Ben. Love that place!

I've heard of both your bands as well, just shared a stage with the Rockets last summer at Pops' Bastille Day thing.

Thanks for the note!

Yeah, I picked up my main K Con ride and brass snare from the Pad - great place, bit of a haul for me but I make it out there every few months just to poke around and get some sticks (and if they've got something I can't resist....). Cheers!

Hey Chicago drummers, feel free to give me a shout when looking for drum gear. I own a guitar & drum shop in the northwest suburbs, Offbeat Music in Lake Zurich. I'm a bit smaller than the other two stores mentioned (and they are great stores) but I do carry some unique product that you might find interesting. I would really like to meet some DW forum members in person and would definitely try to make it worth your while if you took the ride out.

Yeah, Ben's the MAN. Great shop and great people—you really can't go wrong.

Love the DrumPad, too. I used to be much closer to it, but I'm in Naperville now, so it's a little bit of a haul. Either place rocks. And either place usually gets me in trouble with my wife ;)

Hey, Offbeat music! I've been there several times, not for a while, though. I got a set of Aquarian Studio x heads, moongel, sticks, and some other stuff there.

how did you start drumming? um er uh

Hello. I'm a bass player, electric bass guitar. I love drums! If I wasn't a bass player I'd be a drummer. Wanted to be a drummer in grade school orchestra but the music teacher said she "didn't need any more Ringos" (this was around '65 - yeah I'm older than dirt) so I took up dbl bass viol instead. Played that thru 8th grade and then switched to electric.
Played in stage band and jazz choir in High School and played rock high school dances on weekends throughout Washington State.
Went to trade school after graduating in '74 1/2 and was a draftsman for a few years gigging occasionally.
Went to college to learn music theory in Ellensburg, WA. Started playing upright again but dropped it again after leaving.
After that played in Top 40 bands mostly around the Seattle area and the west coast incl Alaska
In mid 80s played in original bands out of Seattle and worked day jobs
Left Seattle in 96 and moved to a small town on the southern Oregon coast. Played in a heavy original band for a couple of years and an original jazz-rock-fusion band for a few years. The greatest find was a jazz gig with two older cats, piano and drums, playing standards and bebop on Saturday nights about half of the year. Drummer is a GREAT player named Ted Owen. Played behind some jazz greats in the Vancouver, BC area in the forties and in the SF Bay area in the fifties and early sixties. Really a smooth player and cracks me up with some of his licks and shenanigans.
Anyway Sandy Nelson turned me on to this site and I'm hooked! Love reading about all the great drummers past and present, rock and jazz.

Maybe I can help out if someone has questions or needs a viewpoint from the bass player perspective. I LOVE being a part of the rhythm section - some ppl like the frosting - I like the cake!

Hey guys, I'm Shane Duckworth from PA.

I've been playing the drums for about 10 months now. I'm pretty much a beginner who is eager to learn many different styles of play and techniques. I started out with and still have a black Ludwig 5-pc, and I'm hoping to add onto it later when I have racked up a god amount of cash for my hobby support. I took private snare drum lessons, but what I really wanted to play was the full set. I think music is special, and I started to play percussion because it is something that I am decent at and I feel that I have the abilities to become really good at it. It is also something that I can have fun with.

So far, I haven't broken a single stick during my practices. I use Vic Firth 2BNs and I'm not much of a heavy hitter. IMO, I think that the coolest part of the drumset is the hi hat; It just sounds really sweet.

For myself, I think that a way to become a better drummer is to listen to a wide vareity of styles from other drummers, then combine the best and incorporate them into your own style, but that's just me - others may disagree. A few friends of mine have started up a musical group (with me being the drummer), something like a rock band. All we need is a bass player and we're all good.

I hope to learn a lot from these forums in the future!
