Want to network with other drummers.
Overall I would rate my experience as intermediate as I have only really practiced hard and consistent for one year. Otherwise, it's been off and on for 20 years...mostly off!
I like doing both. If I want to learn something, I always read the music first and sometimes I'm pretty successful, but, if something doesn't feel right, hearing it sort of 'fills it in' and I understand it much better.
I'm a 4 piece drum set kind of guy but I guess if I had to pick one it would be snare drum.
I've been playing drums off and on since high school. My favorite style to play is old school funk (Clyde Stubblefield and Zigaboo Modeliste). I've recently found a deep interest in linear/gospel drumming.
