a sticky in the drum set section for beginners buying a kit. i feel like theres a new thread for this almost every day.
a section on hand drumming.
a "drumming 101" section which would be a compilation of information deemed important or "need to know" by the older or more experienced cats. this could/should include a GLOSSARY which should include slang and acronyms, a link or transcription of the drum tuning bible, a rundown of different woods used and their sonic properties, a general cymbal guide covering how size and thickness affect sound and things of that nature, little tricks of the trade, and other stuff that i cant think of off the top of my head. basically, a one stop shop where a beginner-intermediate drummer can get a wealth of information that isnt necessarily common knowledge or where more informed drummers can learn a little something new.
