Around age 20 I got my hands on Rock Band(I tried the drums out in Best Buy a few times, and did pretty good..on Medium..with the Auto-Kick cheat. I didnt really think I could do well outside of that handicap) and played and played and played. Got fairly good, go to where I could play Hard on some songs.

After long enough I started going down to the garage and tooling around on my brother real kit. It's all been progressing from that day. : )

How did you start drumming - Since I was very young always tapped my hands to the drums in 60's and 70's rock music that I grew up listening to (even though I was born in '90). Some of my good friends played guitar and bass, one day I decided to try out the drum set at his house. They thought I should definitely pursue it and he gave me a free old crappy CB drumset, and so it began :).

Default Hey Guys [TheLighterDark]

So I'm actually pretty new to drumming. I am now a freshman at the University of Arkansas and played marching snare at a really cruddy high school, but only just recently got interested in drums.

When I was in 8th grade, my parents bought me a Ludwig drumset, but due to neighborhood restrictions and lack of interest, I never really invested serious time in it. This February, I figured I'd really start learning how to play. With money I had saved up, I decided to buy a Roland TD-9 with the rubber tom pads. So far a great, QUIET, investment that was well worth the money. It's greatly helped me in the basic learning stages.

Being fairly limited with money after buying the Roland, I invested in this cheap (and what I believe "great for beginners") double bass drum pedal. I guess it's been suffice, but I'm really looking for some serious upgrades here soon. :)

Anyways, I just wanted to introduce myself and got carried away!

John Thompson
43 years old
Built my own drum set using 7 Eames shells in 1986. Plus timbales and octobans
Peart replica for the most part. I was a Peart disciple.
They're gone now.
Gotten interested in other aspects. Bass guitar and computer music.
Current interest is recording live drum MIDI data into digital audio studio workstation to capture the groove properly.
Using SImmons SD7K and Battery 3. May try Addictive drums.

My son is a drummer, guitarist, and beginning keybardist. He had a good collection of A Zildjians. At some point we'll replace his practice quality kit with something semi pro. 5 lug tom toms don't cut it.

Country?

One really odd fact about yourself?
When I was born, one of the ribs over my heart split, twisted and fused itself together, so I have a block of solid bone over my heart!

How did you start drumming?
My Granddad died when I was aged 8 and left me a drum pad set in his will, so I started to pick up the basics of how to create a beat from that, but never really took it further.
Fast forward 8 years and a few friends thought it'd be cool to form a band and do a couple of covers, so I volunteered to step in on drums, although I'd never been behind a kit in my life. every so often we'd go to our college's practice room and have a jam, and try to play Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit". I managed to teach myself what to do and found myself wanting more! My first kit was bought for me by my family for my 19th birthday and since then I've been playing it off and on again until a year ago I formed a covers band with a friend.

About 3 years

I love all styles of music... Behind the kit I generally play Metal and Rock, though.

One really odd fact about yourself?
Not really odd, but I moved 5 times before I was 8.

How did you start drumming?
I was a guitarist with a brother who had a drum set. I'd mess around on it every once in a while, but then the guitarist of my band quit. We had a gig coming up in about 3 months, so instead of cancelling the show I decided to become the drummer. I was having a ton of fun playing Punk beats and whatnot, but it wasn't until I saw Jojo Mayer do a clinic when I realized I wanted to be a drummer. His drumming was absolutely mind-bending to me (still is), and ever sense seeing him play my life has been all drumming all the time!
