    Good morning ladies and gentlemen, my name is Mark and just wanted to introduce myself. I'm a "semi-senior" citizen of 61, and started playing again a couple of years ago after about a 37 year hiatus. I play for fun, recreation and therapy. Regarding the "therapy" reason, I am a US Army vet of 13 years as a combat medic. Playing helps with my PTSD and the ubiquitous emotional garbage that comes with it. Currently I have a Yamaha Stage Custom, (Honey Amber), Sabian XSR cymbals, DW hardware except for the foot pedal which is a Yamaha FP9C. I also have and a use a Yamaha EAD10 which I love.

    I would like to throw a question out to you all if I may. I'm at the point where I would like to record videos of my amazing "wedding band drummer" skill set. This is what I have at my disposal regarding tech; the EAD10, 7th gen iPad, Acer laptop, a Go-Pro wannabe camera. and my iPhone 7 Plus. At 61 I am fairly adept with technology, to a degree. What I would like to know is given what I have listed for tech, what would be the easiest way to record a decent sounding video. I'm thinking of using Garage Band, plugging the EAD10 into that and do a separate video recording with the camera, download into Garage Band and edit from there. I tried the Yamaha Rec n Share app, but for some reason, even though all my music came from iTunes originally, a good 70% could not be accessed. If anyone has any thoughts, guidance, suggestions it would be greatly appreciated. I thank you in advance.....

    Vic from Phoenixville, PA here. I am 62 years old, been playing since I was 22 or so. Was in a few cover bands way back, then life happened.

    I have recently started following Rob 'Beatdown' Brown online and that has driven me to one on one lessons at a music store in my area. First lesson is Easter Monday. I played for 40 years, but never really learned any technique. Better late than never.

    I listen to a ton of music and many drummers, names unknown, have influenced how I play. Ringo Star is one in particular who does it for me because of how he stayed out of the way of the music. I learned how to leave space and I learned that keeping good time and doing simple fills in a song is not a bad thing.

    Hello, New Member here , Johnny Rotten is what they call me. I am a Male and I am 55 years old , I Grew up in Flushing Queens NY and gigged with alot of bands in NYC and Long Island. I have been playing for quite some time, (about 40 years) Right now I am not currently in a band but hope to soon again as I am recovering from heart surgery and have been out of commission lately. I currently have 2 kits , a beautiful 8 piece DW Performance in Gun Metal Metallic, and a Roland TD-20X E-kit , I am a big Rush Fan, and really don't have a favorite Drummer although Peart is up there along with Buddy, Krupa, Gadd and a bunch more. I hope to have some good chats with you Guys and Gals and I will post pics of my kits as soon as I find out how to. Peace out, Johnny

If you have any alternative way of learning and practicing it will be great. The reason I joint "Drum Chat" is to know what I need to do and how I need to do it! So, this is it! I hope I will be good "student" here

    Hi, all. I just joined tonight. My name is Rick and I'm 65 years old and I just started on drums. My family bought me a practice pad with a pair of sticks last Christmas, mostly because my wife had seen me use my hands to drum on anything, or use pencils or chopsticks, or air drum, our entire marriage. I had been watching video and doing some rudiments, but wanted to do more so I started taking lessons. After four, I realized that I needed a kit, to fully practice and today, I bought my first kit. It's a Ludwig Element Evolution with 10-12-14 toms and a 20 inch bass. As usual, from what I could see, I have ZBT 14' hi-hats, 16' crash, and 20' ride. The snare is interesting. I have, what I believe is a Ludwig acrolite. It's brushed aluminum, with eight lugs and a blue and olive badge with two rounded and two pointed corners. The kit is in fantastic shape and I bought it off of an ad, from someone who was in the Navy (I'm former Air Force) and was just selling a lot of his stuff. I don't think he knew a lot about drums (he had started teaching himself and had a drummer friend get this kit for him). I say I don't think he knew a lot about drums, because when I reference a rack ton, he was puzzled and when I started taking it apart, his comment was I didn't know the stand did that. Anyway, I paid $360 for it, including a throne.

    I've got to clean out a room and then set it up. When I get that done, I'll add pictures. I hope you treat newbies well.
