Music is surely one of the things that millions of children, kids, teen and adults all over the world love and enjoy. There are all different types of music to choose from there is Rock, Alternative, pop, jazz, R&B, Hip Hop, Electronic, Country, Folk, Blues, Reggae, World, Latin, Classical, New Age, and you can just go on and on with this list. In music it takes a lot of skills, time and patients to create it. Musicians such as people who play the Guitar, Bass, Drums, and Piano have to put in a lot of time love and dedication into their work. One thing that I do love about music is the sound of the beat, and that is why I like the drums. To be a good drummer you need the skills and coronation, you need to have and inspiration or a favorite artist to look up too and you need the gear and accessories to create it.In order to be able to get the skills to be a good drummer you need to practice practice practice, there is no way out of this you have to work hard at this. This is something that will take a lot of time your not going to become a great drummer overnight even the best drummers had to work hard to get where they are now. When you are a new drummer you are most likely to get blisters on your hands and you wrist and arms are going to really get tired fast. There are different exercises that will help you prolong your drumming. One is doing a drum roll for 5 min's straight with out stopping this exercise is going to make your arms tighten up and you may get a cramp in your arm or wrist but the more you do this the longer you will be able to play. Another good thing to do is doing stretches with a wrist and arms before and after you play. Also buying a good drumming book and a video can help you a lot to. With the book you will be learning your drumming notes and different drum roles this will also improve your coordination. The video helps too also because in a learning video the teacher in the video will show you different Tec necks and different styles of drumming. Learning on your own is cool and all the best way to learn is one on one with an experience drummer.An inspiration or and artist can be important when learning how to drum. The reason why is so that you can listen drumming to his or her music. Listening to other people music is a good idea because you will learn different Tec necks and you can also playing along with them. My favorite artist is Lars Ulrich of METALLICA. The reason why I enjoy the drumming of Lars Ulrich is because of the sound and the Tec neck that he used with his double bass and the amazing energy what he puts into the music the music with his band. Some of my other favorite drummers that I look up to are Abe Cunningham of the DEFTONES, John Dolmayan of SYSTEM OF A DOWN, Ron Welty of the OFFSPRING, John Tempesta of Rob Zombie and David Silveria of KORN. As you can see I am really into Rock music other music is ok by me but rock is really my thing.When it comes to gear and accessories you first must know what kind of sound you want. If you are beginner you just might want to get a standard drum kit. A standard kit usually comes with a snare drum that goes between your legs, a tom and a tom tom, which is located above the snare. The tom is on the left and the tom tom is to the right, the tom tom is bigger the tom. Next is the base drum and the base peddle, the base drum in located under the snare and the toms and you hook the base peddle up to the base drum. The floor drum goes all the way to the right or the drum kit next to the tom tom. Each of theses drums has a drumheads or skins on each side. The drumhead is the part of the drum that you hit. The high hat cymbal and the high hat stand goes all the way to the left of the drum kit. Then there are the Cymbal stands they Usually come Boom or Straight. Boom means they have like an elbow on them so that you can angle it. With the straight you cant really angle it just stays straight. On the Cymbal stands you put your cymbals. Cymbals are usually flat like a pancake and are made out of copper mettle there is many different types of cymbals there are Ride Cymbals, Splash Cymbals, Crash Cymbals, China Cymbal, Chinese cymbal, China Trash, and Splash cymbals. Usually on a standard drum kit you would use a ride cymbal, Crash cymbal, and high hat cymbals. And that is what a standard drum kit should have. But depending on your style and Tec neck you can add as many cymbals as you like more toms and even Exotic Percussion such as Blocks, Bongos, Congas, Cowbells, Djembes, Doumbeks, Timbales these little add-ons will spice up you sound.When your all done building up your skills and coronation and you start playing along to your favorite band your inspiration or artist, and you get the proper gear for your self and customize it to you likening you will see how talented you can be and how much fun it will be. Drumming is something that I will always enjoy in my life. The best part is when you find other musicians that play different Instruments and they are interested in the same music as you, then you can get together and play in a garage or studio and make you own music. Drumming like everything in life takes time and hart and after you accomplished this you will be on your way to defeat the next thing you choose in your life.
