    Hey,
    I would be keen to write and record (or just record) drums for anyone thats interested. I'm happy to play any style of music and I won't charge anything for it I just want to do it for experience and to be part of making some (hopefully) awesome music. I play guitar too (hence why i'm a member here) but I am a much more accomplished drummer. Post here or send me a PM if your interested.
    cheers Matt

    matt i like you am primarily a drummer
    i've contemplated this idea before as well, but i do not have the proper recording gear for a quality drum recording.

    but this idea would help if you had some vids or recording samples for sure

    I was planning to record something a couple of weeks ago to put on here so you guys could see my playing, but I haven't had the chance. I'll try and get around to setting up my mics and getting something recorded soon.

    @vbshredder I am going to be close mixing the acoustic drums and using overheads.

    If you write the most ridiculous part in the world then I will give you the most ridiculous attempt of the most ridiculous part in the world, just to be fair :)

    Ps if you actually want to write something challenging that isn't impossible I would be prepared to give it a go

    Here are a couple of quick samples I recorded after setting up my drum mics. They are really rough, I haven't set the levels yet and I haven't played around with positioning of the mics so its just to get an idea of what it will sound like. One of the tom mics isn't working too.

    I jammed for a while and just uploaded a couple of snippets, so don't pay too much attention to my playing in the clips, they're just to demonstrate how the recording sounds.

    Hey everyone. Thanks for the responses so far. I've been so busy with uni and work that I haven't had time to do any recordings yet. I also want to get another tom mic (as one stopped working) before I start recording. When I'm ready I'll record a drum cover and post it up here so you can see my playing. I'm really sorry about not recording anything yet as I promised, but life is hectic at the moment. If your interested you can still ask me about recording, but when the time comes I think i'll have to be picky about what I chose to record -Matt
