Well, okay. Maybe not ALL the time. The reason for posting this is that my Dad, who is 78, quit playing his drums a while ago, as those of you who saw my lobby thread about this may remember. He just isn't up to going out gigging anymore (I suppose 77 is a respectable age to play your last gig ). And he never really gets his drum kit out at home nowadays as he can't be hassling with setting it all up and putting it all away again. So rather than leaving these to me in his will, he's handing them down now! The good thing about this is that I have a room where I can leave the kit set up all the time, which means that when he comes round to visit (he only lives a mile or so away and is here two or three times a week) he gets to play his drums. And so do I! We're talking a 5 shell classic white pearl Slingerland kit here, with A. Zildjians and quality hardware collected over a looooong time (he's been playing since about 1945). Yeah, I know - no pics, no drums - I'll post some in this thread in the next few days. I'm not much of a drummer right now, hence my love of Jamstix . But I'm really looking forward to getting better. If nothing else, it's great exercise. And I've always enjoyed listening to and watching the really class act drummers. So, any TBers out there into drumming? If so, any recommendations for practice (exercises/websites/videos et cetera)? In particular, I'd appreciate any suggestions for drum forums along the lines of TB, where I could go and learn from folks who would be keen on helping a noob such as myself.
