    I am a drummer, and only a drummer. I guess I do own a guitar and a bass... but I can't play them.

    guitars really interest me though, and I write riffs on guitar pro.

    playthrough vids from my upcoming EP... um... upcoming.

    I'm a drummer as well as guitarist. No vids though. Play for a 70's/80's rock band and for my own random crap.

    I don't have any videos, but I play drums. Calling me a drummer is a bit of a stretch; I'm more of a drum owner :lol:

    I played drums in a run-of-the-mill rock band for a while in 2011 though haha

    I checked it out, AWESOME stuff, I'm a lover of soothing ambient material.

    Hahaha cool is it your personal EP? Or a band?

    That's cool!

    Hahaha I hear ya I'd say the same that I'm just a guitar owner, but over time that changes!

    I have been drumming for 17 years; longer than I have been playing guitar. I took lessons early on from a jazz drummer, so I have a lot of jazz roots in my playing and compositions. I love playing metal, but jazz drumming ultimately takes the cake for me. I've always played drums in bands, but now I have my solo projects, which I program drums for.

    I haven't had my own kit in a few years, however. Financial troubles and having to move to a new state were mainly the reasons. I miss having a kit badly, and I'm very certain my playing is pretty rusty now. If I had a few solid months of practice, I could be back to where I left off.

    When I'm off work today, I can post some recordings I've performed on. I've played in various metal bands over the years.

    Jazz is always good, I have somewhat jazz influence and am looking into jazz theory/rhythms more. I'd like to know of more jazz drummers, Jojo Mayer and Benny Greb are favorites of mine, they're more fusion but yeah haha. A few years? That's way too long, you should of practiced on a pad or an electric kit at least. Link them videos when you can!

    Definitely a drummer here. No material to display unfortunately. I'd put an emphasis on footwork and knowing when to hang back. I'm no Thomas Haake, tell ya that much. But I love my instrument none the less.:fawk::fawk:

    How about we post about our gear, with a few pictures? I love seeing different people's setups and hearing little stories about pieces of gear etc.

    I AM DRUMMER.

    Teehee. I play the drums, have for seven straight months now. Getting into some of Garstka's work with Animals as Leaders, it's some hard stuff. Also need to cover some Plini once I get my rig together.

    As far as gear, I'm on a crappy Gretsch Catalina kit, and Meinl Byzance cymbals. Lot's of fun.

    I dig, that was good stuff, some real good control on rimshots.

    Sorry can't agree with you there, in this generation people are buying $5,000 and then calling themselves musicians. Learn to play drums, and learn to come up with your own stuff, then you're a drummer.

    When to hang back? Anyway yeah footwork is hard, keep it up? haha

    I'll get to it!

    Ah that's cool, new to drums huh? you got some good gear for only seven months in. I was immensely frustrated when I first started :wallbash: And yeah Garstka is really good, really educated as well.

    New, but I'm 15, learn fast, and practice four to five hours a day. Makes it easy to pick up new instruments... I've had a lot of people tell me I sound like I've been playing a few years, it's always really nice to hear.

    I play an electronic kit. Badly. But, you know, real drum sticks and everything.

    Honestly, I'm a shitty drummer. Any "actual" drummer can probably play circles around me. I play electronic because I live in manhattan and an acoustic kit isn't practical. Can't do anything complicated. But cross training by banging out beats on a kit has improved my guitar playing more than just about anything else.
