I'd say you've been playing about 2 or 3 years.

by the way you're asking I would imagine it wouldn't of been very long. And by the way you like to play every beat rather than leave space, my guess would be around the 2-3 year mark too. Still good drumming- you can do several things in that recording I'd have no chance of doing! :)

Pretty good. You should try keeping a steady beat and improvising on that. It makes it much easier and more enjoyable to listen to.

I'll say 8 months.I didn't hear any groove or much of a pocket anywhere in there.Practice the simple things and it will show in your fills.

some of your ideas are good, but way too sloppy and it got repetitive, so I'm thinking about 2 years.

I think everyone's got it, 2-3 years? You DO have some good Ideas, and the other guys are right, get an ostinato down and improv on it, it's way more fun and sounds great! With what you are doing, you should expiriment with some 5/4 to throw in some narly fills, and rediments Definitely help!!!!! Good stuff to learn:Anything from Soilwork before Figure Number Five!!!! Good luck, keep up the good work!
