On Sunday I had my first ever drum lesson.
Since Dave and I have known each other for over 20 years it's been rather a long time coming, but I guess there's always that thing where you think you might end up in an almighty argument. I have had a few "tries" on the teaching kit when Dave's been out but never managed to coordinate myself enough to produce a rock beat!
So....30 minutes later, what had I learned?
Single strokes, double strokes, paradiddles, a basic fill both ways around the kit and a basic rock beat, as well as how to read drum music!
And marriage still intact!
We will try to do some video footage of my next lesson...watch this space.
Drummer, drum geek, reluctant blogger and eater of cheese!
