    Not a troll post, seriously. I have never learnt to play nor played the drums in my life before. I am playing along on my computer keyboard :P. Have I atleast got the rhythm right? Considering learning the drums.
    The song is 'I want to hold your hand' by The Beatles.

    If you're playing on your computer's keyboard I don't think you can count it as playing the drums.

    Also what's the point of me just watching you head and shoulders bob up and down?

    Right... so this is a video of you tapping on your keyboard? You've got the rhythm right at least from what I sat through, but definatly give yourself a go on some actual drums to see whether you're any good at drums. I'm not an expert (in fact, I can only play a little bit) but its really hard to just pick up some sticks and be good... you have to be awesome at multi-tasking and using your hands and feet independantly. Are you any good at that?

    And why in H&R?

    The video is removed but doesn't matter. I want to learn too there's certain websites that could give you a head start like:
    http://www.freedrumlessons.com/drum-lessons/
    Practising on your lap is a good method if you start taking lessons and don't have a drumkit of your own.

    And the word wouldn't be multitasking, but co-ordinated. Being able to co-ordinate you hands with feet at different timings is an essential technique you'll pick up on.
