    I don't orient my life around proving to people on the internet that I can play drums well, sorry man.

    My current setup is a shitty Roland electric set because I have no space for real drums/I would annoy the hell out of the people below me.

    I don't blame you. I probably wouldn't believe me either, as most people that claim they're good actually suck.

    Again, I can PM you info if you want, but if you'd rather think I'm lying, I can't stop you.

    Sure, I'll take the info. And I'm messing around; I'm sure you're decent. Don't see why you'd lie about it.

    I'm competent enough on the piano that if given the time, I could learn any song. I'm not competent at it by ear, though I wish I was. (ISFJ teacher = "don't worry about those patterns you keep noticing, you'll confuse yourself. Just keep practicing your scales" (i.e. rote learning).
    By the time I figured out she was wrong, I was more interested in athletics and probably only practiced 30 minutes a week other than my 45 minute lesson. I was a bad ass sight reader for a time there, though.

    Guitar I'm pretty competent at chording, but not anything else yet. I have an acoustic, my brother has an electric that I'm learning a bit on.

    Played a few brass instruments in the school band.

Because it was a quick recording it doesn't sound awesome but it sounds a lot better than a tape recorder set up in a garage or something (thanks to my Dad who did pretty much all the technical stuff on it).

    If you really want it PM me and I'll hook you up, but I'm not gonna just provide a link here for the public. I'm not much for making a spectacle of myself . It's a pretty cheesy song and the drumming is pretty straight-forward rock. Not too much to it although the ending is a jam. lolz

    U got any recordings GZA-ster?
    I have a few recordings of riff and chord ideas recorded in my basement in 8 bit sound from as far back as 2005 (which doesn't seme far back, but it is for me a sI've only played for 5 years). I havn't done any in a while, and even out of the stuff I still play I should probably rerecord it cause I have changed it a bit. Some of my better quality recordings are, like yours, a bit cheesy, except their more like rag-time cheesy then cereal commercial cheesy. I may be able to send them to you if you really want to hear them, just PM me and I may be able to figur eout a way.

    By the way, Dissonance, I agree with you that most people who think they are really good really are not good. Plus thinking you're good stops you from learning, and when you lean there's always that feeling like I can't beleive I used to think I was good, because you realize you know nothing and therefor must still know nothing.

    Excellent taste in bass players! James Jamerson FTW

    I played piano for two semesters as an elective in college, but never kept up with it. My greatest accomplishment was playing "Maple Leaf Rag" well enough that you could tell what song it was.

    I also put on bravura singing performances in my car. If I am in my living room, I may accompany them with a Mick Jagger impersonation. No, you can't see. :1377:

    James Jamerson is indeed awesomely amazing. Probably the best, really.

    I can play the piano/organ/keyboard decently. Of the three, I definitely have the least like for playing piano. Not that pianos are crappy, it's just that I prefer the sustaining and less percussive quality of the organs or keyboard voices.

    I learned how to play a couple of songs on harmonica, like Get Back and Lonely Girl, but various other obligations of life meant that I never got past the basic practice phase. I really wanted to learn blues harmonica style anyway.
