It will be about 5 years. And every single day I regret that I didn't start earlier ;)

Rhytm is a way to transmit a description of experience
in an emotional and not abstract way.
It is more than a metaphor:
It is a physical experience as real as any other.

Hi my name is Paul and I'm a new person on this forum.

I've been playing on drum since 2003 (for about 3 years) :)

At the moment, it is like 3,5 year but my 1st year was a disaster and a BIG waste of time. I started when I was 15/16 - maybe it is not to early but I find it not too late.

Sure it's not to late :) Lars Ulrich started to play when he was 16 (his grandma bought him his 1st set lol!), Chris Adler from Lamb of God started to play drums after college. It's never to late :)
