how did you start drumming? I've been into music as far back as I can remember and was always fascinated by drum sets... I used to see those little crap kits in the Sears and JC Penney Christmas catalog and always wished I could get one. Started in the school band in junior high playing the saxophone and right after that, I'd finally saved up enough Christmas/birthday money to buy my first set for $500. 3 months later convinced my band teacher to let me split time on the sax and drums in class. He realized that I was a pretty good drummer and pretty soon I ditched the sax for good. Played snare and bass drum through junior high and have been playing in bands and on my own ever since.

where do you practice? Garage on my drum, bedroom on my practice pad.

are you in a band/s? Nope. Not yet.

what style of music? I want to play the blues, but marching music is fun too.

favourite take out food? Burrito

country? U.S.A.

one really odd fact about yourself? I know how to knit.

how did you start drumming? I started with a hand drum—a doumbek almost a year ago. I've got two of those now, but have now begun to put together a long-awaited set. I have a snare (which I first played on March 28th) and figure that I'll just work on my chops for a while before I start adding things (seems easier to pay for one thing at a time these days). Always loved it but never thought I had the resources before now.

Default 'bout time to say hello...

Hi all,

I've been reading the many fascinating and informative posts on the forum for awhile and have made a few random posts myself. In the interests of courtesy, I thought it time to introduce myself. My name is Phil and I am an American living just outside Amsterdam. I've been living here for almost 13 years now. Due to devoting my misspent youth to traveling the world, I've been away from drumming for more than 30 years. About a year ago, some guys from work asked me if I would like to jam with them. It has turned into a full-fledged band in the past 6 months. We are playing our first public gig on April 30th, I've bought a set of Gretsch Renowns with an unusual wrap finish called Diamond Fire: red sparkle at the edges turning into silver sparkle in the middle. I love 'em. Sabian AAX cymbals, for the most part, along with assorted other gear. I also started lessons since, strangely enough, I don't seem to be able to pull off the same fills anymore.

Long post, I realize, and I apologize for it. This is a great forum and I look forward to enjoying it for a long time to come.

How did you start drumming? When I was 8 years old there was a kids programme on TV called Rainbow. The music had a great drum fill to which I would grab two wooden spoons and smack hell out of a row of Lego boxes. Then I discovered Genesis.

Cheers!

Great website by the way.

Default Hello from Drumndaddy

Hi all!
My name is Greg and I'm dad to a few and still daddy to another and yes I am a drummer as well. Dadndaddy first.
Started playing around 1975. Stopped around 1988 to raise my children. When they got older I started playing again. Yes I wonder why I stopped for so long after realising how much it was to me after not playing for so long. But I'm here to stay!
Playing with 3 bands now and staying very busy. All blues bands.
Lately I've been really digging Keltner, Gadd, Vinnie, early Fleetwood and such. Raising Sand has some great drum sounds going on there as well.
Playing maple PDP's with A Customs and an Iron Cobra. Just got a Yamaha Anton Fig snare and it is sweet!

Well, what can I say?

I'm John, I'm 19 and I've loved the drums since I was 10 basically.

My influences are foremost Lars Ulrich, Bill Ward, Vinnie Paul, John Bonham, Dave Abbruzzese, Bobby Schayer, Tre Cool, Dave Krusen and Danny Carey. My favorite drummers are the aforementioned, plus Neil Peart, Buddy Rich, Keith Moon, Ian Paice and Matt Sorum. I don't want to list Peart or Rich as influences because I'd try to do what they do and fail miserably.

I'm an atheist - if that matters to anyone.

My set up is a basic Tama Imperialstar with a Remo snare head and Evans on the toms. I have a 12 inch china, 16 inch crash, hi hats and a 20 inch ride which I use as a crash stupidly, all Meinl.

I use Lars Ulrich's signature Ahead sticks.

I'm a meteorology, Metallica, pro wrestling and writing nerd. I write poetry often.

I also host my own comedy/weird news show called "John's Daily Dump." Here is a link to my latest show: http://thesop.org/story/radio/2010/0...sh-sinners.php You should give it a listen, as I'm always looking for critique and listeners.

Thanks for reading my crap, and I'm glad to be here!

Hey,
I joined this forum a few months ago, but this is the first time I've started posting.

With the recent downfall of Harmony Central I'm looking for a new place to talk about DRUMS!

Any other HC refugees here?

Hi, my name is Steve

Here's a link to some of my playing. Two different sets of guys. 3 peice originals, the last 3 songs with electric drums, the first 4 on an acoustic set. These were done last month in Nashville Tennessee, the last three with electric Rolands 2 weeks ago in NYC. Oh, and 2 live takes of Jimi's "All Along The Watchtower" and "Little Wing" at an open mic in LA and another (Rehearsed) live open mic at The Bluebird in Nashville doing a Harry Potter parody song "Quiddich Ball" with a little of the Who's "Pinball Wizard" thrown in.


I'm an acoustic drum kit guy, but electric drums are a blast too!

The two Hendrix tunes are on a kit using an old 1918 28" Leedy bass drum and 1970 oversize Rogers toms, 1 up, two down, and the other four are on a funky little beat-up Tama Rock Star kit, 1 ride, 1 crash, hi-hats. 2up, 1 down. I just happened to have my cherished early COB Slingerland deep snare with me. On "Quiddich Ball" I used the house band's set of Pearls and the electrics are older Rolands. Once I got past the rubber cymbals and hats, I grew kinda' comfy with 'em.


www.myspace.com/hookmeisters




No rehearsing except for "Quiddich Ball", just spontaneous impromptu jams, some simple vocals on a couple, mostly just intstrumentals. Lot's of different players.

Hello all! I decided I would join the group after I finished reading the whole John Bonham thread. I decided I would post my first post in that thread and now is my second.....

real name? Jody

age? 38

how long been playing? A little while now as seriously as I can

origin of user name? I am an Aerosmith fan through and through. I loved them immensly as a teenager and when I had my kids I was too busy to keep up the love affair. When my daughter turned 13, she discovered Aerosmith and fell in love with them too. This rekindled the old flames and we both decided to get the aero wings tattoo. Mine is on my leg and hers is on her shoulder just like Young Lust. Hence, I have found my wings,

top 5 drummers? John Bonham, Kenny Aronoff (I love watching him!) Mick Fleetwood, Rick Allen and of course Joey Kramer

make of drumkit? I do not own one. The kit I am using is my sons. We bought it for him 4 years ago. It is a silvertone starter kit with evans heads. It would sound really good if my son would tune them properly! Funny thing is because this is my son's kit (and I respect that) he moves things around every now and then. After the last move, I now hit my knee before hitting the snare and when I go to crash, I hit dead air space. He is much bigger than I am ( I am quite tiny) and I am not allowed to move anything so I have to adapt to this kit that is spread out immensly. It is not easy or effective that is why I have been dropping the hint that I need my OWN kit. Fingers are crossed!

UPDATE, OK!!! My new starter set is coming today! I bought the Ludwig Accent Power series Drums (Black) with Paiste Cymbals! I can hardly wait until tonight!!!

make of cymbal? I get to change this to Paiste!

where do you practice? In the Basement

are you in a band/s? Only in my dreams

covers or originals? I guess I try both

what style of music? Classic Rock

favourite take out food? A&W

country? Canada

one really odd fact about yourself? I have a temporary free drum teacher from Taiwan who has been speaking english for only one year.

how did you start drumming? I have always liked drumming and decided one day not too long ago that I would learn how mostly by teaching myself.
