Default Hello

Hey, my name is Max! I'am 14, and i've been playing for about 3 years. Man, people like way younger than me and same age also are freaking good! I got on this site, then I saw that Royster dude! Man, I really try to get good. It's hard when you have a real bad drumset. My cymbols are all broken and I got no money to buy new ones..YET. Hey, just wanted to say that this site is awsome! Great job.

How did you start: In high school. Played clarinet in grade school (6th grade) and didnt like it so i took up drums (sophmore year) along with choir.

About to start a new kit. Sold my last one. Single kick 20 x 20(lot of thunder from that one), 14 suspended floor, 6, 8, 10, 13 racks and a 14 x 8 snare (great throaty bottom end, sound fills the room). Rolled the shells from italian poplar (12 ply). Nice sounding kit.

Next one will be a beast though, 14 x 8 snare, 10x9, 12x10, 13x11, 14x12 racks, 18x16 floor and ...... two 28x28 kicks. Also will be rolled from italian poplar and covered with either sheet brass or bronze. Should be a sweet kit. I'll keep you posted. Ciao, Rich the builder

Default Hello

Hi folks,

I'm a newbie here, so I thought I had better say hello.

I am looking to get back in to drumming, after a 15 year break, so will probably have some really dumb questions in the near future.

The website is awesome by the way.

Cheers

Dominic

Age? Over 21


How long have you been playing? Since December 2005


Origin of user name? I tried to come up with a "female-sounding" name!

Top 5 drummers? Ginger Baker, John Bonham, Chris Layton, Kenny Aronoff, Steve Gadd


Make of drumkit? Wellllll, right now I am learning to play on a used Yamaha 7 pad digital drum! It's a real hoot (did I really say hoot?!)... has kick and hi-hat "pedals." I'm saving my pennies for an acoustic set. I'm so glad I didn't go out and get a really cheap kit at the beginning. I am now doing my research so I can find the right set for me. So far I'm having lots of fun learning to play. As for the research, I'm going around in circles! Hoping to get help from ya'll later.


Where do you practice? Living room, so I can play along with drum lessons on the tv.

What style of music? I enjoy a little bit of everything, but classic rock and a bit of blues are the best. I enjoy music from the following bands: Cream, CCR, Doors, Eagles, Neil Young, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, Van Morrison, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Led Zeppelin, Jeff Healey, Heart, Mary Chapin-Carpenter, Norah Jones... and lots more.


Country? USA


One really odd fact about yourself? I'm the Miss America of Odd.

How did you start drumming? I decided I'd be good at it and wanted to do it! I don't know if I will be really good someday, but I sure plan to have fun! Seriously, I do hope to become a skilled drummer... but I'm trying not to pressure myself into being perfect (and getting frustrated along the way). I can be too perfectionistic sometimes, but perfectionism and fun don't hardly mix together so well, sooooo I am trying to make sure I am having fun first, and trying to leave the pressure of perfectionism behind. I don't know if I explained that very well.


So, anywho, I've lurked here for awhile and decided to join. I think I'm addicted to this place! I'm enjoying reading as much as I can here.
