    Impromptu Jam

    I got together with some friends and played last night. I was a bit rusty at first but found the grove after a short while. Lots of fun! We're planning on getting together regularly now. Never too old to rock 'n roll!!

    Lifeline...

    Nothing like living and feeling in perfect time and rhythm. A lifeline connection to your deepest parts, the rhythm, it's who I am.

    So, For Those Drummers...

    I'm VERY possessive and anal-retentive about my drums. Especially the feel and tuning... Anyone else feel as anal about their drums?

    Drumming Withdrawl

    I miss my drumset. I played in highschool, but couldn't take them with me when I moved out. We lived in the country so it didn't matter how loud I was, which was good because I was LOUD. I'm in general a quiet person who doesn't talk a lot so maybe that was my outlet. I kept my...

    Drum Tuning

    After all these years I've gotten darn good at tuning drums. But no matter how you do it, guitar players & amateur soundmen will always balk. (They think a drum should sound like a couch cushion) So I finally broke down and got myself DrumDial tuner. The real beauty of this...

    Drums, Drums, And More Drums

    I have always had a huge interest in drums. I just never actually got around to getting a kit or start learning until last year. I broke down and got a kit, finally releasing all that built up angst to bash on the kit. Growing up I was always a big Genesis and Phil Collins fan...
