    Hey Andy Tama - I know I'm late in posting this but I only joined the forum last week, but just thought I would let you know that I'm from Manchester, England, so not too far away from you. Are we the only English people on here? Not that it makes a difference, I was just wondering.

    Hey TPO, thats cool. My day job is in Salford Quays just down the road from the Lowry mall and I currently live in Ashton. How long have you been drumming? Do you play in a band?

    My first job was on Magentic Quay in Salford Quays! Used to love going to the Starvin Marvins for lunch. That was 12+ years ago now and I don't even know if its still there!.

    I've been meaning to try drumming for 20 odd years, but could never afford the price of a kit, plus was in rented accomodation which isn't ideal for a really noisy hobby, so I just never got round to giving it a try.

    Until May this year, when I encountered someone locally who was selling a Pearl Forum kit with cymbals for 60. At that price, and now having a detached house, I decided to give it a punt (with a lot of encouragement from my wife who loves musical stuff).

    Discovered I really love it, and from what my tutor says I have something of a natural aptitude. Not meaning to blow my own trumpet, he just said I picked up a lot of the basics really quickly, which is cool!

    Right now I'm not in a band and no particular plans to find one. I'm cruising in to middle age and very much playing because I enjoy it rather than any aspiration to live the dream and be a rock star. Not that I would be averse to that, but I already have a good job which supports my family and I can't imagine the circumstances where I would risk that stabillity for the risky prospects of stardom! I'm also a long way off the standard I'd need to play in a band. I can do a good basic beat, and a few simple fills, but there's not really any variation in what I play.

    However, once I get a bit better, I could see me maybe getting involved with some sort of local band. The sort that play for fun rather than trying to make a serious go of it, if you see what I mean.
