one really odd fact about yourself? I own the Satanic Bible.

how did you start drumming? I think this question should also include who or what influenced you to start but I will answer the question. I first started in 4th grade in concert band on snare alone (no kit). During 7th grade I got my first (present) drum set. I just loved. I never tried set before then but it changed my drumming life. 8th grade was last year of concert band. I am now Junior in High School that is in the Jazz program. I have been playing Jazz since Freshmen year. I mainly listen to metal but Jazz has opened my eyes to the drums and I love it. I was influenced by my best friend "Bones", thought he plays guitar. He is probably one of the few people who have helped me to continue playing and not letting me quit.

country? United States

one really odd fact about yourself? I have no clue

how did you start drumming?

It all started in a food chair as a young baby. I always had rhythm, and I received my first Silver Star drumset at age 2, at age three, I received a Yamaha junior drumset. Once again at age 10 I receive a Synsonics Drumset. Then at age 16 I receive a Tama Swingstar Drumset. at last age 18, I bought my own Premier: Cabria Drumset. I really gained intrest in drums from watching the drummers in church. Afterward i started developing and practicing different styles, and expanding my limits in music and now I am a all around decent drummer.

Hi all,
Griff here.
No band atm. no kit atm. Not even sure if I will play live again, but saw this site & thought I'd say hello. So I've played on/off for 33 years. No expert as I'm self taught but the things I do seem to sound o.k. so can't be doing much wrong.

How I got started: Friend at the time says 'Let's start a band!' (Never happened) He gave up. I kept learning. 2yrs I was ready to join a band. My thanks eternally to Ian Paice for the drum tuition. (He didn't teach me for real, I just listened & copied his playing) Then learned a few things. Had good & bad GIGS over the years. The bad ones help you enjoy the good ones even more. I think I'm going to enjoy this site.

Thanks Guys Girls.

Griff.

Default Hi

Hi all,

I'm new here but not new to drumming. Started playing at 14 now 46. Played professionally for about 20 years till about age 36 and haven't played since.

Looking to getting back into playing just for a hobby this time and I believe it keeps
us somewhat fit.

Hmm, maybe when I get my confidence back I can look at doing a few gigs. All good fun.

Cheers,

Minskie
