I'm new here, so thanks for the invite to introduce myself.  I've been playing percussion on and off for 8 years.  Mostly west african, then about 2 years ago picked up the congas.  I'm now embarking on trap set lessons, but don't yet have a kit.  I'm looking forward to all the knowledge in this cafe!

Hi guys!

I've played guitar for a while now. I am just starting to get into drumming but I have always had  an interest in percussion and percussive sounds. This seems like a great community to be a part of while I am learning because of the wealth of knowledge.

I listen to primarily Jam Bands, Older Rock Music and Jazz. Some influences include

Coltrane
Phish
Velvet Underground
Talking Heads
RAQ (Check this band out if you've never heard them they are great)
Art Tatum
Bill Evans
Medeski Martin and Wood (Billy Martin is one of my main influences getting into drumming)
Lester Young
Allman Brothers

Thanks for all the replies to my "beginner questions" thread.
