    I am not trying to stroke you off, but this is no surprise considering the level of coordination that it takes to really master drumming. Your brain has to be configured in a very unconventional way. I'm not sure if it is within your frame of reference but, check out Decapitated. Their drummer just died last year in a bus crash. He was unbelievable. They released their first full length "Winds of Creation" right after the drummer turned 16. He was 14 when they started recording. Unbelievable how someone that young can play so technically as a functional member of a band.

    I tried the whole drumming bit, when I was 17 I went out and bought a $600 set of ludwigs I played (or at least attempted) on those things for a good 4 hours a day but after a month of nothing but bs I realized I had no skills in the drumming department.

    Well, only a stupid person would think that anyone else is stupid, without good reason . Although, I have met many talented musicians who had no common sense and no worldly ability outside of their respective instruments. Obviously this does not apply to everyone, or even a majority. I guess anyone who becomes too wrapped up in something is prone to losing their perspective on everything else.

    I'd love to get into drums bt its not something I can afford at the moment. One day possibly soon I'll get me another set maybe I'll learn something but I'll probably just fail again....lol

    Well, I'm an artist, I guess that explains why I like songs with a lot melody and the kind of higher pitched notes... I think. Anyway, right-side brain ftw!!!

    There are several studies from universities like Dartmouth (NH FTW!), detailing how musical (as well as other art forms but mainly musical) processing, comprehension, and subsequent reproduction involve both the cognitive (left) and affective (right) sides of the brain. This is most likely due to music's mathematical derivations. This is part of why music is oft touted as a great mental exercise, and, extremely beneficial for children, whether or not they succeed or make it a life-long past time.

    Drum playing, even complex drum playing, is the oldest form of music. Ergo,

    Banging on things with sticks may require a sense of timing and loose limbs, but I fail to see the point in elevating it above any other musical instrument. Listen to Stanley Jordan sometime.

    Really ? How's that working out ? You learning to rationalize like a human being yet ? Or treat those around you with a shred of courtesy ?

    You get a gold star to put on your calendar when you don't vicously attack those that think different than you ? Do you have any ?
