Welcome, Dan!

Glad you are still playing despite all that you've gone through physically. I haven't played reversed Traditional grip much, simply because I haven't had a need... and I've got plenty to work on already.

There are some players out there who play reversed Traditional grip... and are right-handed. One particular individual I've seen do this is Billy Cobham... but he doesn't more for fun (and to show off  ;D ) than doing it out of necessity.

Hey there.  I'm an amateur drummer.  I have been playing since I was about 12 years old, so that works out to about 45 years.  I have been active on and off over the years but I'd say more off than on.  At one point I was able to connect with some people in NYC and we did a number of showcases in the Village at the Bitter End and the Red Lion.  That was more than 15 years ago and I am now trying to work on my playing some more and have been jamming with some guys for fun before covid-19.  Looking forward to some vibrant and healthy discussion about drumming and music and anything else that floats your boat.  Big fan of fusion, jazz, funk, r & b, rock and all things Zappa.
