Well here's my first attempt at playing and tracking along with a song. I chose this song, "What If" by Tokio Hotel because it does a lot of grooves that I tend to be drawn towards in electronic music. I'm using this forum in a way to document progress. My goal is to share my struggles, achievements, and thought process. As much as I'd love to only tell you about only the great stuff, I feel I'd do a disservice to future musicians and anybody who is struggling to express themselves. I ride a fine line of being a music mentor and a performer. Ultimately, I need to create music and express myself first and foremost but helping others find their musical voicings is extremely rewarding.
That being said, this is where I am playing drums with about 1-2 weeks of practice with a click. Since I'm already familiar with how to drill myself with other instruments, this seems to be coming to me pretty naturally. In about a year, I'll either think about venturing into a brass instrument or the cello but I'll shelve that for another time.
