Ok folks, I took all your very helpful advise and this is what I came up with, overall I am very happy with it, and frankly a little proud of myself, I think it turned out pretty darn go for an amateur, anyway have a look/listen and feed me you knowlewdge.

BTW this is not a solo, my playing it just goofing around the kit, basically hitting everything, nothing fancy or cool about it, thanks.

nice feel dude! some creative critism though. watch your diddles. make sure you dont crush them. just work on double stroke consistancy and you'll be fine. and watch the tempo. when you started going to the ride and then throwing in the double kick the tempo kicked up a bit. but these are things every drummers has to fix at one point or another. just pointing them out so you can work on it and get it out of the way now and keep growing as a drummer. but good feel. nice job!

I was not going for performance, I just figured out how to record my drums, so this is just me hitting everything in some kind of beat, to get a sound down, this is in no way a solo or anything I am proud of by anymeans, this is strictly just to get some footage down so I can hear what my drums sound like recorded, I will post a solo later.

But thanks.

Wow man, you get a nice sound off your drums. What kind of heads do you use and how are they tuned?

About the grooving, it was in the plain pocket. Same thing about the diddles as 2k mentioned. Open your hand up a little more and it'll come out nice and crisp.

Thank you,

I use Evans G2's on my Toms, and the Generea Dry on my snare drum, and just the stock head on my kick, thanks.
