Strange thing: I don't really remember when I started  Huh
I remember buying my drums around my 15th or 17th birthday (not my 16th, that I know for sure  Tongue)

So I've been playing for 19 or for 21 years.  Lets say 19. (God, I'm old  Undecided)

I'm not too sure about that.  I have the bad habit only playing when I rehearse with the band (because I hate moving the kit, and I can't play at home because of the noise).  Also, I never took lessons or paid much attention to stick patterns, rudiments and stuff. 
But all that will change next week, when I get my e-drums.  So I hope to learn a lot myself.  Tongue

And if I feel I can teach anybody anything, I will Wink

Cool on the snare and the tom, but I think the XS20's are a bit B flat in the splashes. If I were you I'd go for an Zildjian A custom. I got an 8" for $130 Canadian.

I started learning in 1958.  I'm still learning today.

Music has been a lot of fun, and I am more involved than ever with several different acts in Nashville.

For those, who may be intersted in my advice to aspiring new drummers, here it is.

Listen to all kinds of music with an open mind.  Even if you don't like a particular style of music, or the style of a particular artist, you might still learn something useful.

Practice the things you need to work on, more than you review the things you have mastered.  Break down the elements of the patterns or fills that are problems and work it out one step at a time.

Always devote some practice to keeping steady, rock-solid time.  The ability to lock in a steady groove is a basic skill.  Everything else, including solos, is built upon that fundamental skill.

Learn to play relaxed.  If you are tense your muscels can't work the way they should.

Well Gramps, I would have started in 1964, but that's when I was born so I waited until 1970 officially. But in reallity my brother had drums since I was around 4 years old and I know I was sneaking in and hitiing them puppies right away at 4  Grin

 So the official 1970 translates to 38 years.... Man does that make me feel old! I haven't done anything that long, except maybe breathe!


So all that being said... 38 years   that's  266 years to my dog.  Cool
