Hey all. I'm new to this forum and just wanted to introduce myself. As a youngster, I would bang on books, buckets, cans, anything I could get my hands on (including a nifty metal newspaper rack that worked great as a cymbal). I eventually got my own set around the age of 13. I've never had formal training but listened to lots of music and eventually became good enough to play in a cover band for a few years. I hung em up after I moved into an apartment and got busy with working and life. After a 25 year hiatus, I decided to jump back in again. I'm rusty....even though in my head I still feel like I got it but I know it takes time and practice to get my drum legs and hands back. I am still pretty busy w/ life (wife/kids/2 jobs) but am putting as much time into it as I can. I'm glad I found this forum to be able to read through postings that may help me on my journey back into being a drummer. Thanks again!
