Second lesson under my belt

Posted by TimDreamer on Monday, March 19, 2012

Got my second lesson under my belt and I'm already picking up bad habits.  Learning to arch my left hand over the neck is going to take some getting used to and my instructor and I are thinking about super gluing my pinky to the drum head..... LoL.  Normal nooby problem areas so I guess that I'm right on track as far as that goes...  :-).  Up to 66 bpm on my rolls and went through Banjo in the Hollow and Part A, B and B Alternate of Cripple Creek.  Started learning some other things but I'm sure I'll have to go over them several times to get them stuck in my head.  Great time.  Loving every minute of it.

Congrats. Best advice I have is take it slow, don't get discouraged and what ever you do, have fun.
