name? Zach

age? 16

how long been playing? I think...5 years?

origin of user name? Well, I always thought a user name like "left hand lead" sounded pretty cool, but I don't play left hand lead, I play traditional grip/right hand lead, and traditional grip sounds cooler. So there.

make of drumkit? Yamaha Stage Custom

make of cymbal? Zildjian/Sabian/Paiste. Working towards all Paiste though...

covers or originals? Originals

what style of music? Jazz/Funk/Blues/various types of rock

favourite take out food? What is there other than Chinese?

country? USA. Almost embarrassed to say so though...

one really odd fact about yourself? I'm the only person in my highschool to do 3 "sports" (marching band/basketball/baseball)...not too "odd" but I guess it's "cool"

how did you start drumming? I remember always being into drums when I was little. So in 5th grade, I signed up for the band, and then it led me to the actual set in 6th grade.

Hi, I'm Bob. I've been playing since 1970. I play a 74 Gretsch 5 piece with Zildjian and Paiste. I am 51 years old. I currently play with a contemporary Bluegrass/ jam band from Connecticut called The String Band. I've been playing with them since Feb. of 08. I have a jazz background, so I like to incorporate that feel into the bluegrass style. I found this music to be a challenge. None of the licks that I was used to playing fit with the music. That's why I settled on adding jazz to the mix. So far it has worked. I have gotten many compliments. When I was a kid a guy from the Bronx in NYC started calling me Bob-Da-Drumma. That's how I got my nickname. I learned to play in a drum corps in Trumbull Connecticut when I was in seventh grade.

Welcome, and just so you know, that guy who posted above me owns the joint. And he's a really nice fella at that.

I, too am a late bloomer. I started in 2002 when I was 26 and took weely lessons for about three months. I exhausted my talent pretty early on and now all I got is from working at it ;-)

As for the site, it is indespensible. The insights from the members and wealth of questions answered (that you didn't even know to ask) are impressive.

Welcome to your new addiction. We have about 16,000 pushers at this connection.
