Write and record in newly built home studio -Originals only. I believe life's too short to spend it playing covers. IMO, the difference between artist and musician is the ability to create vs. playing what is created by others.
Play various styles depending on the song we're writing.Play guitar,Bass and record with ProTools.
Drive '03 Corvette and love to invent/create/improve on ideas at home and work.
Got start in Drum Corps. here in the Great Northwest. Realize from seeing all the drummers here between 14 and 24,just how many lose the passion somewhere along the way before reaching my age.

Name: Dusty
Age: 21
Years Playing: 8
Inspirations: Charlie Watts, Brooks Wackerman, Longineu Parsons III and many more.
Reason Behind Screen Name: My main band "On This Day"

My style of playing is a bit "unorthadox" because I try to combine the technique of all my favorite drummers. I played traditional grip for the longest time due to my stint in the marching band while I was in Junior High and High School. 'Till this day my snare drum tilts away from me, instead of level, or toward me. I'm a really straight forward guy, and I love to learn and talk shop.

EDIT: Sorry, wasnt aware of this page. I copied and pasted this to here.



Hi Peeps. :)
Im known as David Ford online, and strangely, Im a guitar player LOL. Ive been constantly on the search for drummers. Not sure HOW active I can be in the forums, but I'll try. But before I started posting, and getting to meet you all, I thought I'd intro myself. I dont want to seem like Im spam, so here it goes,,,(cough ,,,couch,,,COUGH!! Hey, its pollen season :P )

Name is Dave (duh LOL) Im from Boston Massachusetts. Im 39 years old. At one pint in my life I was an EMT. Currently I work transporting handicapped kids to a special school in Brighton Mass. Love the job. Lot different than I thought the job would be.

I originally picked up the guitar at age 6 (Will someone please turn off the background music? LMAO ) Even though, I never got guitar lessons, it never stopped me. Not that my Dad couldnt afford it (trust me he had money) I just never asked him. Id watch MTV, when it was MTV, and kept watching the video to see where guitar players fingers where (someone else's wallet LOL Kidding, cough)

By the age of,,,11-ish I bought my first electric with my own money from paper route. Still I never learned anything, that wasnt 100% visual. Didnt have book etc. I'd say for the next 20 years, all I did was play and watch. As that time went on, Id start putting names to the chords. Id catch someone on a show or video that would state the name of em.

Well, about 6-ish years ago, was playing my stuff in front of a friend who also played. He liked it, but said it was old. He was doing Metallica, and I was playing the Eagles etc. Not that it wasnt good, its just old. What he said was some what true, and it trully hurt. So I placed down my guitar, more likely to never play it again. Just about a year and half ago, my other REAL friend was bull, I placed the guitar down to never play it again. I used to come with things that normal players didnt. He used to be impressed, that I could take my guitar and play lead to things like, his kids toys, or to something that had no melody. Always had a tune, when one wasnt there.

So I agreed to retry, and thats when I met him (well, not him, but knowing of him) Joe Satriani. I heard of him before, but never listened to him. Once I heard his music, the heavens almost sang to me. Instrumental Rock, without singing. I couldnt sing, But could do more than just strum chords. He was right in my alley. So as of today, thanks to JOE, I know have 2 electric, 1 Bass (9 hours old) 2 electronic Drums, several pedals and ready to rock and roll. The only problem is, the $400 in electronic drums are almost useless to me. If it isnt a pre-set, Im lost. My only gripe is not having a drummer. Always doing projects online with guys, but the lack of drums or drummer, is a bummer. Which is what brought me here.


Sooooooo, I know Im not a drummer, but I always need one, and like to work with some online. And Im hoping the Admins and Mods, if its ok with them, ID like to stay and meet some of you. Im extremely good hearted, friendly, sense of humor and work well with others. (Am I joining a forum, or applying for a job?? LMAO :P ) Ok, I guess thats it (plus my hand is sore from typing so much.) Is it ok for me to stay?? Will follow all the rules!! (edit, cant spell tonight LOL)

Dave :)

Hello all, I've been reading this forum for a coupla years now but not posting so before I charge into any discussions it would only be polite to do the introduction thing first.
real name?...Tone (tone bloody deaf too)
age?...49
how long been playing?...started playing about 77/78 in communal house punk band and was godawful then,stopped for years though always a drum fan.My son started playing in his school band on the kit and when Grandma bought him a kit I decided I'd like to get back at it,that was a few years ago but I'm still bloody terrible but I love to woodshed so no harm done to an audience. One day I may be alright.
origin of user name?...Also a Wing Chun practitioner.
top 5 drummers?...without doubt, Danny Carey! many others from many styles but four names more, Donald Johnson (A Certain Ratio),Pete DeFreitas (Echo & the Bunnymen...RIP),Orestes (Bitch Magnet, I think that was his name),Terry Chambers (XTC)...many more though, like Hugo Burnham (Gang of Four),Karl Burns (The Fall),Topper Headon (The Clash) etc etc !!!
make of drumkit?...none, it's my sons,Percussion Plus 5 piece with added Sonor floor tom. Thinking of buying a Tama Superstar Hyperdrive, 7 piece when I build a shed to put it in.

where do you practice?...Kit's in sons bedroom much to his chagrin.
are you in a band/s?...Not yet.
covers or originals?...N/A
what style of music?...well !!! If I could play like Danny Carey,whatever took my fancy but,that ain't gonna happen at my age so drummers above should hint at styles.
favourite take out food?...I prefer to cook my own food but probably Thai.
country?...Born in England,grew up in New Zealand,live in Australia.
one really odd fact about yourself?...I work hard, while at work.
how did you start drumming?...Always loved to listen to drums and just happened to get a kit when punk hit town and talent was not required to have a bash.Seriously wish I had taken it more seriously then though but, hey! Whaddya do? 20/20 hindsight is a bitch.

Default LeverageL1 - Introduction

Hey everyone,

My real names Leonard and i live in new south wales, Australia I am 20 years old as of yesterday and i have been playing drums for about 5 months and i get lessons weekly.

I currently have a mapex voyager drum kit and im trying to learn as much as i can which is why i think this forum is a great place.

My favourite drummer is cobus potgieter and he is the reason i play drums as well as the fact that drumming is just epic and the skill involved in playing well interests me.

I don't know what else to say so yeh hi :P
