Recommended Posts

I've been playing probs a month or so. I'm not very good.

 

But lo-fi is my thing. I'm just experimenting with mics for recording atm. I just got a singer today. I can't jam with people, though. my house is going under some serious construction atm. [thumbdn]

That's great taking up the drums. I'm sure it'll make you a better guitar player in terms of rhythm. I can only do peradiddles...and only VERY slowly.

I made it to Flam Taps before I gave up on lessons at age 14.

Never regretted that decision.

Well I'd say you trying to do to much at once Bux, slow down and master a strait beat first. Hit the snare on 2 & 4 and the base drum on 1 & 3.

 

I did that, then my friends taught me more. and now I'm building off of that. I just have to keep moving on or else I get bored and give up on myself.

The first couple of years I did a lot of playing while wearing headphones.

I would put on a song I liked, and play along with it. I did this a lot, and it really seemed to help me learn.

If you're not already doing it, try it. [thumbup]

This was how I started to learn stuff that I had on record or tape as well but I didn't need it for long as I quickly learned to recognized the patterns. Bux, drums is a physical instrument so the boring repetitive drill's is how you get good at it. Unless your a prodigy then it will take some time of playing the same few beats over and over to develop mussel's and dexterity to make it become more of a 2nd nature to you.
