Do you know how to play any percussion?

Like a trap set or just a snare?

start with basic drumming patterns. Can you read music? If so, go to a music store and get a book full of beginner's excercises. If not, take a couple lessons. It'll go a long way  :thumbup:

cool congas

I'm moving in with a roomie Jan 1 and he has a basement I want to convert into a nice space with my guitars and drum set

No, I don't know how to play any percussions at all. I'm definately going to look into getting some kind of lessons. If anything my dad will be able to show me how to use them.

I can read music so I will probably be picking up a book as well. It's definately something that I want to know how to play.

yeah, they're cool

best thing you can do now is get a metradome and and work on keeping a steady beat and making your hands even. A lot of beginning drummers BANG with their right hand (or left hand if they're a lefty) and barely tap with the other.

for now work on what's called a "paradiddle"

it's like four 1/8 notes (one-and two-and) except you have to use this pattern:

(R= right hand L=left hand)

RLRR LRLL

start slow then build up.

WEll, I'm ambidextrous, so I should have a pretty easy time evening out my hands.I'm gonna set them up here in a little bit and mess around with them a bit.

I'll make sure to work on the paradiddle too.
