Hey, I'm not even sure if I can create a new thread here but anyhow...here it goes!
I'm Justin. I've been playing drums for around 18 years. Mostly self taught. And of that 18 years...LOL there is a lot of that time where I wasn't progressing in any way. I actually probably got worse far more often than I got better. A little more background:
In 2015 I realized I wasn't very good at drums. I couldn't keep time, I couldn't play rudiments, and I honestly didn't know a quarter note from a 16th note triplet. Yeah, it was that bad. I, in those years of barely playing, did manage to develop some good technique but mostly bad ones. I found Drumeo in early 2015 and have been using a combination of that and youtube to try to get better. I have made improvements and I have gotten better but I'm still stuck. I can't seem to get passed where I am and break through to the next level. I love Drumeo. I love that community. But the more accountability I take then the more likely I am to follow through and actually get somewhere with this.
Adam, if you see this, ever since I've been on this journey of getting better, I have been blow away by your playing, your humble attitude, your wisdom and your general approach to life. You're an awesome dude and an awesome drummer. I don't know why it took so long for me to subscribe here but now that I did it, I'm ready to dive in and learn as much as I can from you!
