    Yep, I've been a drummer since I was 14 (18 years ago), and as much as I adore cars,...............I enjoy making music even more ;)

    I also play a bit of guitar, bass, and piano/keyboards, but drums has always been my main instrument.

    Nice bit of kit there, I probably can't play drums to save my life, but I'd sure give it a good go if the opportunity arise lol :rock:

    With the bits of teaching I've done, just about anybody can play a basic 4/4 rock beat after a few sessions ;)

    Can you pat your head and rub your tummy?.....................it's THAT sort of thing, left brain/right brain.

    People with a dodgy sense of timing can develop and improve it too.

    Most people love drums, and EVERYBODY should try it at least once in their lives given the chance :)

    I've got a guitar, haven't played it in probably 9 months though.

    Was trying to teach myself but gave up... will get round to it again eventually.

    Sadly I'm not very well orchestrated!!

    Many moons ago I thought I'd mastered the 'wooden block' at junior school,,, only to be devastated when informed, by my more talented siblings, that my performance of Little Donkey at the school concert was, in fact, ****......

    I'm a bit rough around the edges, but not inept in front of a keyboard; but to be honest it doesn't really matter too much because there are tools of the trade that help out :) Simply put, I can whack together a catchy little number with enough time in front of Cubase, but if I ever got asked to do a Live PA I'd probably be dead in the water!

    Regards,

    Rob.

    EDIT: And sort of stretching the theme of us posting pictures of us playing our instruments... Here's a quick snap of the early tracking stages of my last project...

    10 amp Peavey?..........I presume that was a typo? :p That there Peavey is one of the loudest small lead amps I've ever heard :)

    Yeah I've been in tons of bands over the years chap, probably 30+ all-in.

    My main interest is in seventies/eighties rock (Purple/Zeppelin/Sabbath/Heep/Kansas/Rush/Whitesnake/UFO/Focus/Maiden etc etc etc), but I also love seventies funk (Parliament/Curtis Mayfield/Isaac Hayes etc etc).

    I've PLAYED most other styles though, because gigs pay money after all ;) Done blues/death metal/soul/MOR/pop/americanized indie rock/british indie,......................anything apart from country & fookin western LOL!!

    Neil Peart is God in my house ;)
