new, but not new

Hello, I really enjoy this site so thought I would engage. Have played for 45 yrs. 20 of that pro. Have owned Ludwig, Down Beat ( 1964 Joe Morello Model Oyster Blue Pearl), Premier, Pearl, and now Rogers, Big R. Latest purchase, a Gretsch COB snare, 1971 - nice, really nice. Have Ludwig Supra, Rogers Dyna, the Gretsch, and believe it or not, an Olympic, mint, 1960's bought in a hock shop for $20 Can. It plays nice, warm sound. Highly underrated. Highlite of my career, meeting Ella, lowest turned down Johnny Winter, most stupid, not taking Clarke Rigsby's offer for his Tempest Studio in AZ. Most uplifting, finally meeting Joe Morello, and having him John Henry my 1966 Ludwig snare. Yes, Virginia, there is a career waiting for you out there! You just have to grab it!!!

Welcome to the forum Christopher J.

Do you remember that old toon where the guy goes to his basement and pulls on the rope that makes a boot kick him on the rear? Stop being so hard on yourself.

Been there in my fifty years banging the drums. I got Johnny's video playing at B.B.'s.

As a teen I hung out at Electric Lady Studios when it was being built. Could have and might have back then. Instead I persuade a career in electrical engineering.

At least I got to jam with some pros back in the days. Drumming as a hobby some 50+ years. I stopped pulling on that rope a long time ago.

Lots of great drummers here at the forum from every genre.
Happy drumming.
