How many people are drummers on here?
« on: September 12, 2006, 11:24:19 AM »
Ahoy!

Inspired by the fact that nearly every single person on this forum seems to be a drummer, I thought I'd see just how many drummers there are on this site as well as guitarists, bassists and singers.  So, vote on the poll - are you a drummer, guitarist, bassist or singer?  I guess that some people will play all those instruments and sing too so just put up what ever you consider to be your main instrument.

I've only put what I thought would be the four main answers in the poll but if it turns out we have a load of people who play something other than what's in the poll, e.g. bagpipes or accordion or whatever, I'll stick them in the poll.

Thanks guys,

P.S.  I'm a guitarist!  ;D

Im a drummer, although ive not played in a wee bit and ive since traded my drum kit for a set of decks.  I played in a few bands and got free lessons at school,  before i had a kit i was always tapping like fuk on the desk driving everone mad.  Neil and Richie were a huge influence on my style.

I myself am a guitarist, I from time to time enjoy sitting behind the drums at practise and messing around but I?m quite the amateur drummer. I did get to play drums on my bands second album though, drums are something that are fun to mess around on for a while whilst the guitar is something I love and can pick up whenever I like and spend hours with.

Neil Cooper is like a bad AIDS that infects all Derby drummers at some point or another, I am glad to be rid of it now, it may still be deep routed though!

Yeah I shaw do,

and I never have sounded anything like him anyway! More like David Sandstrom ;) Neil Copper great drummer, nice chap, all ways has a good word to say about everyone. Big up the Derby massive!!!

I think The Derby Drum style is one of the most defind sounds/ grooves in England! Like the New Orleans second line drumming in America. Its a style unto its self, but you can only pick it up if your from Derby.

Also Don't forget Tree he is the Load of playing drums for the song. I owe him loads. I hope he's well.

Hope everyones well

Greg.
