Re: I got kicked here by RockBand.


Thats what RockBand Is doing.
Making drummers by the dozen.
But mostly, Kids from Rock Band think they're amazing from a Video game.
Hopefully your not like that.
How long have you been drumming?
Me= 5 years.

It's always good to give yourself some extra feedback.
Cause if you think your bad,
You'll soon ask yourself,
"Hey, why am I still drumming? I know I'm bad.
Whats the point of it?"
So Thinking your good will just make you more confident in your self.
Keep drumming!
Cheers, I.E.

Re: I got kicked here by RockBand.


Welcome aboard friend.

I would actually recomend you get yourself some lessons. Even just for a little while to help you get your potential off the ground. Yes it's all a lot of fun just to smack the poo out of your tubs, but if you're really going to make a go of the instrument, getting some lessons can be a great way for you to get some fundamental techniques together.

Re: I got kicked here by RockBand.


I agree with Skinslapper--lessons will take years off of trying to go it on your own. An instructor can introduce techniques that can make playing easier and faster, can help you work out grooves and fills and most important, expose you to new music that will stretch your abilities.

On that note, how many of you new drummers know how to play "50 ways to lose your lover" ? It sounds funny, but that groove is a foundation that many songs have been written over, and most new drummers will never hear that stuff because they aren't exposed to it by someone else...

Most, if not ALL working professional drummers take lessons or have taken lessons along the way. I got my start with lessons from a neighbor and have played semi-pro for over 20 years. Neil Peart, Dave Weckl, yes, even Joey Jordison all still take lessons today. It's not about how much you know, its about stretching it to another level...

Re: I got kicked here by RockBand.


Yup they do. As a mater of fact Neil Peart's lesson taking was big news for a while there.
