36 Years Old
I have started this blog as an extension of my drumming and my passion for it. I started playing music when I was around 15 and although I wanted to play drums and even started taking lessons I switched to guitar because of money and lack of space / too noisy for my family. I took a total of 8 lessons with only a practice pad to play on before making the switch to guitar. I started playing classic guitar by taking the class in high school and joined guitar ensemble as a part of my lessons. While I learned quickly and really enjoyed guitar I struggled with chords and as a result ended up playing bass outside of school and as part of the ensemble.
Thanks to a really good friend who took me under his wing we started a band and I continued to play bass for a number of years. All the while still aching to play drums and frequently playing them at the jam space although I continued to be terrible.
Call it a mid life crisis or the fulfillment of a life long dream but this year I purchased drums and have started my journey.
