    I don't know about you - although drums aren't my primary instrument - when I listen to the likes of Dave Weckl or Steve Gadd, and realise that those GITS {thanks Kura1984 hehe) can do more with ONE hand than I can do with TWO.
    Heh, I think I could probably still play triplets on each hand at machine gun pace. Although it has been a while.. My finger technique (oo-er! :rolleyes: ) was something I was particularly proud of

    JR, the flam is when you play a grace note, followed almost simultaneously by a louder stroke with the other hand. The idea being to get a single 'bigger' note.
    I find this fairly easy to do correctly when playing the grace note with my left hand. When it's the other way round it's harder to get the dynamics right.

    One rudiment I enjoyed practising was the paradiddle while counting in triplets. Makes you have to concentrate a lot more

    Someone I listen to a lot, still, (drummer wise), is Jeff Porcaro - original drummer with Toto, sadly he died in 1992 - but oh man - what a player imo.

    My mum played the cello at the RAM and manage a few tunes on the violin, and my old viola teacher was learning the cello without much difficulty, so I think you can transfer the skills. I guess if you already play the violin and viola, you'll be used to spreading your fingers out more etc!

    I've played the acoustic guitar for 3 years now. And the electric for about a year. My acoustic guitar was passed down to me by my dad who had it for 30 years since living in Brazil. The electric is an Ibanez S470.
    Now I'm also picking up percussion music. Starting off with African drumming on the djembe.

    I play the oboe - once you get the embouchure (sp? pah, it's a mouth, whatever my teacher says :rolleyes: ) right it's as easy as any other woodwind instrument.

    Ah right. Well I play sax, clarinet and flute so I guess the embouchure is very different to them! I only had a brief go in school, I think if I had one of my own and really tried then I might be able to get a sound.

    Not too keen on oboes anyway though.
