Hi everyone!

My name is Chase, seventeen years old and have been playing drums for six of them. I currently play a peavey 500 series, with a PDP Concepts snare. When it comes to cymbals, I'm a Meinl child, and a massive beliver in the Byzance line. I mostly play worship music, but will also play rock, indie, pop, or whatever else comes to mind.

Welcome new people.

I hope you enjoy this forum as much as we all do. Well at least as much as most of us do. ;-) There is certainly a lot of great information here and a lot of opinions.

What's happening guys!

My name is Skip, early 30's drummer out in northern Virginia. Been playing for a lil over 20 years off an on. Currently rocking an oversized early 90's Pearl Export (24/14/18/14s) and Sabian APX cymbals (15/24/20/20). Mainly into playing metal, more specifically Doom / Stoner / Sludge as well as more ambient and spiritual stuff as well. I'm also an avid guitar and bass player and hang out on other forums, I just decided to get back in to drums after a three year hiatus so I'm excited to get in and chat!

Hello fellow drummers.

My name is Mike and I'm here in CT. I played drums like mad as a kid but stopped completely about 30 years ago. This April I was driving to work a I heard a Chick Correa song with Dave Weckl on drums. I almost didn't make it to work. I suddenly realized how much I missed playing. Being 53 and hopefully with some years left I decided it was long past the time to dive back in. The drummerworld forums have been such a help so I decided to join. It is amazing how much I didn't learn the first time even though I had a professional teacher, a dad who played drums, and I practiced hours a day and played live with all kinds of bands.

Here is stuff no one ever told me but I found on the forum
Ear protection!
Practice slow before you go fast
Learn it perfectly - not just good enough
You can use your fingers to help your wrists
Use a Metronome
Always have a targeted goal oriented practice sessions. Be mindful of what you are doing
A good drummer rarely draws attention to themselves with technique or fills but always makes the other musicians sound better by creating a strong groove and deep pocket.
There is so much new great study material.
Everyone thinks their equipment and favorite drummer is the best ;)

Who knows if I will get very good, but though age is hard on the body there are compensatory factors that come with age and are making it easier to learn difficult things
Patience
Humbleness
Ability to relax when learning "impossible" stuff
Persistence
Lack of concern about being great - I'll settle for good some day. I'm looking forward to being a full time drummer in retirement

One more wonderful thing at this age - I can buy good equipment, study materials, and lessons.

So thanks for all that I've learned here already and I hope I can give back at some point.
