Hi everyone,
I'm Mike, I live in Hollywood and I have been playing percussion and drums for 11 years. I got hardcore into drum set about two years ago. I am a classical percussionist first, and drummer second but absolutely love playing set. My favorite drummer of all time is Max Roach and I am really digging the old school Jazz stuff right now (especially the Clifford Brown/Max Roach stuff). I look forward to learning a lot from the large drum community here.

Default Introduction

Just wanted to introduce myself. I'm a friend of Danny Britt's (I'm actually his current accountant and former guitar player). I've recently become more interested in drums after having played a little snare drum in high school (and hearing dan talk about all of his projects) so I decided to join and start learning more about drums from the folks in here. I may even get a kit if the wife gives me the okay!

Look forward to posting here in the future!

Default Re: Introduce Yourself

Between all the threads on this board and all the instructional read-ups I need to catch up on, I am completely overwhelmed! Anyhow, I am a relatively new drummer from the San Fernando Valley, CA, where I have lived all my life.

My musical journey started as a young kid. I liked to buy cassette tapes with allowance money at the Warehouse near my house, where I bought anything that looked cool: from Richie Valens to doo-wop classics to Metallica to NWA to 40s big-band. I listened to these tapes on my Walkman where ever I went. At the time, I didn't have any real musical taste, except that I loved hearing the beat of the drums. During grade school, my interest in playing music started when a multi-instrumentalist music teacher, a middle aged conservative lady who - while highly intelligent and creative - thought that listening to classic rock was the equivalent to devil worship, urged me to take up piano. I learned the basics of reading notation, counting beats and whatnot, but I fell out of it around 5th grade (only to pick it up again recently when I scored a Fender Rhodes and some 60s-70s sheet music a few years ago). Fast forward through my junior high and high school years where I was an awkward, antisocial bookworm/couch potato type who didn't have any real hobbies. It wasn't until I started college when I picked up record collecting (see music genres below), which resparked my music interest. One day a couple of years ago, I decided that I wanted to play the drums. So I bought a cheap but reliable Ludwig set at a used music store. It wasn't until several months ago, I got serious learning rudiments, trying to imitate records, playing triplets, 3-against-2 polyrhythms, etc. It's amazing that last year I struggled to coordinate my limbs to do a simple, straight rock beat. Now, I'm dabbling in off kilter snare funk beats, Afro-Latin clave based rhythms and coordinated jazz playing. Slowly but surely, I have been disciplining myself to set aside a portion of my day to practice. If I can't (or, regrettably, too tired/lazy), I make sure I set aside time to listen to my records, attend a jazz show once in a while, or watch a drum vid, at the very least. Speaking of which, I have Netflix and rented Steve Smith's and Tommy Igoe's DVDs recently, which are both very concise. Anyhow, I'm a mediocre player who needs to work on a lot of stuff. Weak left hand! Trying to find the most comfortable and efficient way to set my drums up! Sounding stiff, predictable and linear! My ADD having self always reverting to playing the same stupid 4/4 rock beat and fills without feeling like I'm improving! Ugh! However, time's on my side and I am determined to actually create music.

Real name? Ryan
Age? 24 (in a couple of days)
How long been playing? A little under a year
Origin of user name? My initials. Plus it's like a right double stroke
Top 5 drummers? Chico Hamilton, Louis Bellson, Bernard Purdie, Frankie Dunlop, James Gadson...I have too many favorites, though
make of drumkit? Ludwig
make of cymbal? One 18" Sabian. I'll get more when I get better.
where do you practice? Garage
Are you in a band/s? Not yet. Maybe in a few years.
Covers or originals? Depends. If it's a straight forward, note-for-note cover then I might as Well listen to the original.
What style of music? Jazz, Latin/salsa, psychedelic rock, 90s era hiphop, late 60s-early 70s funk, traditional African music, reggae...
Favourite take out food? In 'N' Out
Country? United States
One really odd fact about yourself? I have no sense of smell.
How did you start drumming? (see life story intro above)

My other hobbies are teaching myself to speak Spanish fluently and watching movies. (40s-50s noir, 70s crime dramas, obscure B-movies, old sci-fi...)

welcome, Ryan

unusual to meet people with a bandwidth of tastes as you. Going by the descriptions of your favorite music and favorite drummers, thats a pretty wide wingspan.

Nice! I like music liberals! Welcome to DW. This is the nicest friendliest, warmest, place to discuss gear, technique, instruction, gigs, drummers, concepts, marital problems.. anything under the sun..except, do read the rules, its kind important , and the forum members and mods take that pretty seriously.

I hope you have as great I time here as I do

Hey Ryan..Don't ever see yourself as playing stupid 4/4 rock beats. I can remember starting out myself and sliding right into that groove or rut as it was! Master that 4/4 feel and begin to hang your own ornaments on it. You'll get there. Just be persistant and know that there isn't one drummer alive today who isn't in a constant learning process!
Welcome to the loyal order of Woodchippers!

Default I'm almost a drummer! lol

well i've been a bass and guitar player for the past 7 years and it has now come to pass that I will be getting a kit of my very own. over the past year i've been following out of my buddy rich snare drum rudiments book on a remo practice pad and i've also been playing my father in laws 70's butchers block kit as much as possible. I really cant express how insanely excited i am to completely dedicate myself to the kit and learning its ins and outs. or at least learning the in's and outs' that i want to find. lol...i'm excited to be a drummer!!

much love!

Its not necessary to change the reso heads. Save your money, change the batter heads and see how they sound. Also check for used cymbals on line you may spend as much for them as new ZBT's. www.cymbalcellar.com

Well, at the tender age of 49 I have decided to play drums. I bought a nice old Ludwig kit, but I'm really only playing the practice pad right now. I'm attempting the self-teaching route at this point, but haven't ruled out a teacher by any means. Right now I'm committed to starting slow and learning the rudiments. I can see I have my work cut out for me for the near future, but I already find the physics of drumming fascinating and I'm having fun with it.

My musical tastes are ecclectic. For drummers, I love to watch Joe Morello play. Bernard Purdie is a new find (for me) and just blows me away. I now realize I have heard him on hit records all my life. I also love the classic soul drumming of Al Jackson Jr. Also a big interest in early 60s instro/surf rock.

This site is an amazing resource. I look forward to learning a lot from you all.

Well, i spose i best say Hi. im new here but i am a member of both the Pearl Drummers Forum and Mikedolbear. I have been playing for about 7 years now but i would say around 4 to 5 years properly. I am now 14 years old (nearlly 15 then i will have been playing for 8 years). I live in England and are in a few bands which i hope will get me some drum work e.g. session work or just get the band famous, well dont most people wish that happened?? I hope to become a session musician or be in a band, or both :P. Most people i know say i am very good at drums and now i feel that i should learn jazz as jazz is MUCH harder than rock and others, also incase i do become a session musician so i can be used in many genres.

Well thats about me, i will upload some videos of me once i record some (which probably wont be until I get some mics or i could do it at band practice).

Default Tell me about you

I am pretty new to the forum, but from what I can gather so far is that there are a lot of talented drummers in here with much to share. So on that note, (no pun intended) tell me about you. How long have you played drums? What is your style? etc...

I have been playing drums about 15 years and started in elementary school as soon as I was old enough to join the school band. I have been passionate about all genres of music that include tasteful drumming--one of the best examples being latin jazz. I have had the honor to play with BB King in Memphis, TN on the night of the millenium, Dec 31, 1999--I write cadences and practice my technique everyday. As far as chops go I was won a "1" in state senior year of high school and my director said that in 20 years of teaching he hadn't seen any drummer as natural as me. Yet, I look around and see so drummers like you in this forum that are on my level or better--I am only one of many serious, talented, and passionate drummers--so tell me about you.

Well I have a bio here (www.handidrummed.com/drummers/profiles/rob/) so I won't bore everyone with the details, but my name is Rob. I've been playing for about 16 years, and I run a website for disabled drummers at www.handidrummed.com. Myself, I have Cerebral Palsy which usually only affects my right foot as I have limited ankle movement (pretty much none in a playing context).

I also just started teaching at a local store and soon I may be involved in the music education program as a coordinator between that store and the sister store.
