hehe, you want to be told how to play drums?
I could write a libery on how to play, but i cant assure you that you will learn anything from it.

Have a look at this video:
<a href="http://video.google.com/googleplayer.swf?docId=7706942941309183434" target="_blank">http://video.google.com/googleplayer.swf?docId=7706942941309183434</a>


Its not the best teaching video ive seen, but it certainly covers the basics that you should find usefull. It should also tell you the basics better that i could, typing it all out.

The guy does run everything past quite fast, so dont get put off if you cant grasp everything at the speed he tells you stuff. It will take a long time untill you can do the stuff that he does at the end of the video.

Hope that helps, and we'll be more than happy for you to stay on these forums  Smiley

I agree, you won't pick up everything right away, also i think its really hard to teach drumming to someone, because after you learn the basics, i think you kinda take it from there.............i havent had a teacher other than my band teacher, since i learned what a flam was, i just listened to everything i heard music wise, and practiced till i learned how to play it, then i would start to make-up my own stuff.

Yea, thats something i didnt point out, listening to music. Once you get the basics, and can handle the simple beats, listen to the drums in other music, and try to copy the beats in them. This is quite essential if your gonna teach yourself, because its your main source of new beats.

Nice, and well done.

I wont be able to help you on the flam, drag and ghost cos ive only just started plying them from tabs myself. I know whet they are tho.

A flam is where you have one stick 2 inches from a drum, and the other stick 12 inches from the same drum. You then drop the sticks at the same time, and at the same speed. One stick hits the drum, and the other hits a moment after.

A drag is one stroke of an open stroke roll. You just lift your 3 supporting fingers off the stick, and use your wrist and thumb and forefinger to press down and keep the stick bouncing on the head untill it dies out. The idea is to keep the stick bouncing for as long as possible (never really longer than a second).

A ghost stroke i'm not sure about. I think its like a rest, where you dont hit a drum....you like, hit your leg or the air or something...just something that makes no sound. Thats probably wrong, but its my best shot at it.


But they are quite advanced stuff for a beginner. I wouldnt expect an early learner to know how to do them. But sure, go ahead and give them a crack.

i think either you can play or you cant.  i know a girl that did pick right up on drums.  3 weeks ago.  shes already better than another drummer i know that has been playing for about 10 years. either you got it or you dont, but dont stop trying. ever! (the world needs more drummers at all levels.)

10 years >> 3 weeks. Even a paralyzed dummie could play better if he was studyin' drums for 10 years...
Well, miracles happen ! ! ! !

shes was doing basic beats, keeping time, doing (basic) fills (without screwing them up) and singing after one week (she was a singer before)... she knows her limits as a drummer.  he on the other hand tries way too much.  hes has heard me play alot of times, and whenever i hear him play, i hear things that i do, only in the worst screwed up way possible.  she is very musical (singing, guitar, bass, drums....) and knows what is too much for her to try.
