What are some nice and simple songs for beginners to play along with?

Hmm....

The Offspring - Hit that

AC/DC - Back in black (or any AC/DC song for that matter)

System of a Down - Lonely Day (yea, you can do the fills at the end right?)

But as a better bit of advice, pick what you want to play. You can master those songs, but still be a beginner. Aim for the highest! Push yourself by trying songs you think you'll have no chance doing. Many are a lot simpler than they first seem.

I use my mp3 when I play. I have tons of songs on the mp3, and I play along to whatever i want to try.

No, i compleatly agree with you. I play with head phones. Full blast, but the right ear uncovered. Just so i can hear the drums better. I should respect my hearing. I no already that my hearing isnt as good as others.

Yeah, that is exactly how I play, one ear phone in one ear and the other hanging down. I find it much easier to listen with an mp3 than with a stereo.

I would listen to a stereo, but my neighbours get anoyed enough with just the drums, let alone a loud backing track!

I'm lucky (plus I have a good day job) cuz, I practice with my V-Drums, through to head phones when others are around or sleeping and then no one gets bothered but me Smiley

but when no one's in the basement or nearby, i'm playing my acoustics, mic'd, through a mixer and i use IEM's (with a built in limiter to try and preserve my hearing) and just play as load as i want (no neighbors too close) Wink

But, back in the day (when i was in my twenties and unfortunately didn't care about my hearing) i used to do the same thing, stereo cranked, head phones on, one ear exposed  Grin

I probably would use a stereo, but my drums sound way out of tune. I've tried tuning them a couple of times, but its hard to tune when you have never really done it before. The drums are old so I'm sure they could use a good tune, and one day I will tune them right. Until then, I will simply play with my headphones and music, to try and tune out the bad sounds. Smiley
