Up from the depths comes the musicians thread
I have been searching Craig's list for cheap drums for a while and this morning a guy puts up a full 4 piece set,with cymbals,stands all hardware-for 350 bucks-gretch club set for working musicians-this whole package would be 8-900 new.So i jumped on it,even though the rack tom was the wrong size-listed as a ten it's a twelve so i have it tuned way too high.Other than that my big keith moon set came together pretty good.The new stuff is even the right color.
I have been practicing double bass for a while without drums just my feet,so i am further along than i would have expected-i can play overkill by motorhead,but it gets a bit ragged at the end.
i am happy with my playing lately-since the new year i have been PRACTICING every day-not just playing along to a band,but actual work at getting better,and i can hear it-i am more consistent as well,no more days when i just don't have it.30 years after my first set i am working at this hobby of mine for the sense of achievment-i will never be in a gigging band again,but i love playing,and it feels good to be getting better.
heres my mutt set
