Hello drumsmylifers,

I an inexperienced drummer (with 12 days practice!) and was curious about when others started play alongs.

As I mentioned I have trained for 12 days now,and you see my progress( or lack of) through my live drumming practice video journals, but I still can't drum along with a song. I can sometimes keep the main groove, but struggle to keep up or play any fills really.

I wanted to know if that is on track with others (learning all the basics ( rudiments ,etc)before drumming along), or if most people jumped right in to songs first flailing to keep up. WHat's your thoughts?
