Thank you for your kind words! biggrin.gif

I know it's going to sound like I am playing difficult in my answer - but part of the key to success is to never call yourself good. All the people I have encountered who called themselves good, were actually quite ...

But I see what you want to say - and I could start to impress people after 1-2 years of intense practicing. smile.gif

Ooops sorry missed it - an average of 4-10 hours when I practiced the most I believe!

All the yrs I played drums , I would say the same thing. Once you think your great ,it seems you might think your done learning. Like Niel Pert of Rush after yrs with Rush after Moving Pictures way after. The guy says my tool box of drum knowlege has alot more room and he started taking lessons from Buddy Gruber old time Jazz guy. Niel changed his grip from a modern grip that he used his whole career to a traditional grip like old jazz. humbled himself and to most drummers like me growing up he was the Master. So the Master became the student and he has learned alot more. Like Kris said I think you should never consider yourself great that kinda of thinking might hinder your drive, thinking you pretty much learned everthing . I think you can never learn everthing there are so many styles in drums and guitar you could never master them all.I love a really talented humble musician . smile.gif

I have found that quite true Kris. I called myself good onetime. I will never do it again.

Ill say this .You know you dont play like crap when people start saying ,your good or great or whatever. and then when a another musician tells you those things and not just a fan/friend or family then I felt it gave me a good boost of confidense that I am heading down the right road and I was doing somthing right. Not saying your great but its nice when other people think that. Musicians are raising the standards all the time
