Mother to little boy: What do you want to be when you grow up?
Little boy: A drummer
Mother to little boy: You can't do both
sorry, used to be a percussionist myself but got fed up in the end, didn't get on with my teacher too well. From that experience this joke is completely true
ive been playing for 7 years. lol - thi think drummers often 'over kit' ther drums .i went thru that phase. Then the novelty wears off and u end up going for the simpleton style lol . I gig a lot and tis not practical to keep putting on all those cymbals. Also they are very valuable and you dont want no pricks hammering the **** out of cuz the 'forgot' to bring some of ther own. Also thers set up time, and the risk of theft too.
To be honest, i could afford a better kit than my export, but its just nto worth it specially for gigging purposes anyway.
ive recently left my band though in the hope of joining a new one at uni.
i think we should start a tsr drummers society!
I learnt drums for a year or so a couple of years ago but stopped having lessons because...well, I was rubbish (and didn't practice enough to improve).
I still have my kit (Gretch with Zildjian symbols) but it gets very little use and the snare sounds bad.

i want to learn so badly!
who did you learn from or did you just each yourself?
horray for drumming!
Been playing about 4 years now but still have an awful, awful aria starter kit (I have at least got new heads and zildjians though).
I play the drum kit and have been for nearly three years now. I've only got the basic CB kit (red) but with Paiste cymbals (not those awful tin lids you get with the CB kit).
Potos and pans. They're my mum's actually.
[QUOTE=Who's any good at reading music for playing the drums??[/QUOTE]
I'm pretty good at reading the music but only because I played the trumpet before hand. My teacher also writes out my excercises on manuscript paper.
