Hi everybody:
Im a percusionist and beginner drummer, any suggestions will be appreciated. Percussion and drum kits are two complete diferent worlds. The have some similarities, but definetly different.

Hope to make some good friends here.

Re: Beginer


ozeno,

First off welcome to DSC, good to have you here.

My best advice would be this:

Becoming comfortable behind a drumset takes time and it can be frustrating to someone starting out. Be patient and each time you sit behind the kit try to improve one thing just a little bit. Trying to do too much too fast will make drumming no fun anymore.

Thanks you Der Trommler, that is a lesson I keep in mind all the time. Its a bit frustrating when you sit behind the kit to try to play things like por's do. I'm taking it a day at time.
Thanks for your advice.

Re: Beginer


It's good to think like a percussionist while playing a kit. Have lots of floor toms on both sides so you can play tympani patterns and always use rack toms and cymbals in a melodic way like you're playing a marimba or other melodic percussion instrument. I used to play a lot of multiple percussion pieces in school so I like having lots of accessories on my kit like cowbells, woodblocks and a school bell. The beauty of drum set playing is that your kit and your style can be very unique.

Re: Beginer


Thanks Slingerland, so fai I've been able to incorporate some of the rithms that I used in the past. I think cowbells, claves or either wood blocks are a must on any style of music. Must of what we play is Texas country music, Rock & Roll and some melody rock from the 80's and so far everything is working. Thinking like a pecussionist while playing drums has been a great help. I'm glad I'm not the only one that think like that.
