As I wrote in my other thread, I bought an used E drum kit and today I tried playing drums for basically the first time. (I've only ever played 4/4 on hihat, snare and kick, so I tried a few other things here). I'm creating this thread to track progress smile.gif

This is nothing serious for now, just me having fun with a new instrument:

Very cool! COngrats on your new kit!! I'd like to invite you to use them on that collab we were talking about doing if you are up for it as a way to break them in!!!

I got another 20 minutes under my belt. Total playing time went from 30 to 50 minutes during this video. Skip to 18:43 to see what I set out to accomplish.

Still a bit away from Portnoy! But thanks! I'm working on learning my first fills, but it's tricky, as I get my hands mixed up and end up crossing the sticks in the wrong way.

That's entirely natural of course. As is losing track of the beat in the middle of a fill. I was the same way and so was everybody else who ever tried drums! Just like guitar, it just sorta makes more sense after a while. Post your first DOUBLE BASS when you do it!! I remember when I first made double bass work, it was like "YES!!!" smile.gif

I do have two kick drums connected to my e-kit, but I'm not able to make good use of them yet smile.gif
