Hey Drummerkid! You have awesome speed and so much potential it isn't even funny. I've been a hobbiest drummer for over 4 years and can't touch what you do speed-wise. And you're so young! I'm 47 and don't have nearly as much time as you do to get better.

You got some great advice from these guys. I just wanted to add maybe getting a groove book/DVD like Tommy Igoe's Groove Essentials. Really great material.

Good luck, and don't ever give up. You have natural talent.

This won't be the only plateau you reach, there will be more. Just do what drummers do best.........be stubborn. Refuse to stay idle, refuse failure at all levels, and the rest will flow. Good luck bro.
