    Lots of stuff on the tube, just search for "blues shuffles;" 40 of them but you don't need to learn them all to play ZZ Top or Skynryd or Queen or Led Zep. It does help to have a feel for shuffles in general, tho.
    SONOR 6 pc Special Edition 3007's red maple, old Pearl Brass 14x6 FF snare, Yamaha Tour Custom maple 8 pc., Tama 4 pc., honey amber B/B, Ludwig Supralite chrome 14x6.5 steel snare, Paiste, Saluda & Zildjian
    Loaned out Slingerland upgraded 4 pc 1963 black, wrapped maple + 14" Pearl birch FT

    Thankyou getting there....very late starter on Drums at 55...only been playing a about 4 weeks lol....have been a Vocalist in many local cover bands over many years and also played Bass and Guitar but just fancied a change...bought a cheapo Acoustic kit last year but to loud to practise so actually got rid of it...but missed it and traded my Bass gear and got a nice Yamaha Electric Kit so I can at least practice now
