Fast Lane Pablo

I took some drum lessons when I was 12 in summer school. Now a gazillion years later, I've decided to at least learn how to back a singer-songwriter at a jam. I have a kick, snare and hi hat and a cymbal or two. <br /> <br /> Should I concentrate on the snare for a while before I incorporate the other drums, or should I approach it as a kit? I'm going to take some lessons, but I want to make sure I have some solid fundimentals. Thoughts?

Fast Lane Pablo⦠âa kick, snare and hi hat and a cymbal or twoâ is all you need to back a singer-songwriter at a jam⦠in fact it is all I have used at my last fifty gigs or so as for this type of gig I couldnât be bothered lugging my main kit and the lack of toms turns me into a tasteful player⦠:-) <br /> <br /> Definitely get lessons, but I would do so from a drumset perspective⦠hands and feet, not just snaredrum.<br /> <br /> Sorry it took me so long to respondâ¦<br /> <br /> <br /> <br />

You might pick up a book of rudiments and work on that too. Sticking is important if you want to regain some speed.
