    New to drums, intro and a couple questions.

    Hi all, just wanted to give an update on my progress. I have been working thru an Instructional book I bought when I got my e-drums called Fast Track Drums vol 1. I think it's a pretty basic book but right now it is more than fine for me. It starts out with some Ride basics, then snare, then...

    New drummer with TD-4 e-drums. Hi hat help

    Update: Got an FD-9 and am happy with as a beginning drummer can be. I am still working on some very basic stuff so when I am doing an exercise that uses the hit hat closed only I will throw the FD-8 back in.

    New drummer with TD-4 e-drums. Hi hat help

    I'd like to thank every one of you for posting, all of you have made great points that I appreciate. brentcn, you make a great point and one I have been thinking about. Becoming just an adequate drummer will be a task, one I can achieve but a task nonetheless. I doubt there is anything I can...

    New to drums, intro and a couple questions.

    I have been playing guitar for about 30 years and also own an e-kit . ( Roland TD-4) My initial goals were to get some basic grooves/fills/etc under my belt to do some basic recording. I've had the set for a few years and started taking lessons but had to stop the lessons after about a month...
