not playing for a while


Hello to everyone

I havent played for a while now and I am almost not feeling like setting the kit back up.
I love playing but I have run out of things to play it seams like and I cant seem to find a band to play with.

Im not sure what to do anymore just seems like there is nothing I want to play along with anymore.

help anybody please

thanks

Hmm i went through a phase like that...it happens alot when your learning...Play get bored...then learn something new and get motivated. But what Id suggest is this: Since your used to the big kit and all its options, why not try stripping your kit down to a five piece or a four piece...maybe going back to a single kick...just to challenge yourself. And when you have the small kit, try playing along to some of the stuff you used to on the big kit. You'll find that youll be learning alot more ways to utilize what you got. Also you could try playing along to some stuff you dont usually play along to...(jazz maybe?) So good luck with the kit...and if you lived anywhere near me I would be over as fast as I could helping you set it up!!!

I think everyone goes through that. I just did. It sucked but I joined a rock band and now I play all the time. I guess I just got tired of playing metal with the dudes in this town.
