I've played in jazz bands, a death metal band, a metalcore band, 4 musicals, and jammed with some blues/southern rock guy quite a few times.

So I dunno... at home, I usually like to just groove and sometimes do some dnb stuff. I might be playing in a prog rock/metal band next. I guess I could say I'm not a lattin drummer--that's definately my weakness. :D[/i]

im kinda with some people who said they are more a musician than a drummer. I play piano, guitar, bass, drums, and im a trained vocalist. so i call myself a musician.

Probably rock. I don't have a double pedal, so I can't really pigeon-hole myslef in to the metal category... I guess Prog Rock or Post Hardcore is the best way to describe what I play.

Currently metal. Progressing on my my double bassing speed now though. Then i'll be playing mostly death metal, starting from easier ones of course. Anyone can recommend me a couple of death metal songs that are good for practice or start offs ?
