My oldest daughter has a drum kit set up in the sun room!
But you've succeeded in starting a new band!
Matt, put the gun down abd step away! Look at the bright side of it. Now you won't need a drum machine to keep time too! At least she's not hammering away at power chords through a Line 6 combo like I suffered with at GC today. It was enough to pull that trigger...
"Drums are good, you don't want them to stop. Because, then you'll have the bass solo..."
Hold On ... This could be a revolutionary advancement for the world of drumming. A drummer that has been under the positive influence and proper tutelage of a bass player. This could be the end of 8-beat long tom fills and double kick drum during the chorus. She will even know how to read charts. You could be our savior!
Don't feel bad.
My son is a lead guitarist in the making.
She can always get a job delivering pizza like 80% of the other drummers...
while I do hope my future first born becomes a bassist I also plan that each of my kids will play a different instrument so we could all jam together on Saturdays
besides, look at the bright side, the drummer and the bassist are the closest partners in any band/ensemble, I'm sure the both of you would make a tight rhythm section!
My daughter has her drums set up in my man-cave. I couldn't be prouder! Why have two bass players in the same house? I can jam with a drummer... I can't jam with another bass player.
It could be just a phase. My son started on acoustic guitar, moved to trumpet then when he had the choice in a school band he choose bass. It took him a few years to get to that point but he's there and loving it.
On the other hand, if it's not just a phase....go with it. Like has been already said, you can jam with a drummer but not another bass player.
Wait, saw Sonic Youth on Austin City Limits and they had 2 bass players!
They also have guitars and a drummer. I'm not saying two bass players is bad....just a little hard for just two bass players to jam without other instruments in the mix.
kidding of course
You need to see Mike Watt's band Dos. 2 bass players and nothing more!
My sentiments exactly. In fact, the drummer in my current band is the son of a bassist and he and I are working together famously. It's like he knows what I need and what I'm gonna do before I do it. He's only been with us 6 weeks and played 4 gigs and it's already like we've played together for years.
I see this as nothing but win for you, sir.
One of the reasons why I started my son out on drums. I was hoping to create a non-flakey, disciplined, and musical drummer that has some impulse control. I figure I could have him mow the lawn and play drums at least until he's 18.
Here he is:

Is that guy with the gun to his head Mike Reno?
On the contrary, it sounds like you've done exceedingly well. Rhythm section!
Christopher Walken. From a movie called "The Deer Hunter". Good flick.
In my town Portland, OR it is impossible to find a drummer - and harder to find a good one. Send her here
