You should have told me you were interested! I probably could have gotten a good price for you!
Glad I could help!

I got it for $29 off ebay. Are you able to get it cheaper? I wouldn't mind getting the 2008 or 2009 version.

Let me check my price guide!
EDIT: They aren't showing any of the newer versions (yet), you got the better deal on this one. I could have gotten it that price, but that was my cost. Good find! Let me know if there is anything you need in the future!

Here's my lessons ideas:
- Accenting and using special effects (like octobans, concert toms, timbales, roto toms, bell cymbals, etc...)
- stick spinning
- hi-hat tricks
- using cowbell/block with foot pedal
- a video showing what is the best drumhead for your style of drumming
- a video showing the difference between cymbal brands
these are my ideas, I hope it will be useful

IDK bout u guyz bt since my 1st drum teacher made me jam a lot nd play to songs a lot, i find tabbin or playin by listening way easier than sight reading... bt now my new teacher...under whom ive been trainin for 4 months now...focuses more on rudiments so ive got a lot a things cleared up nd cn sumwhat read sheet music....jst get kinda stuck in markings like ds al. coda nd odd bass nd snare positionings in 16th notes....

Things I would like to see more of.
1. Ghost notes and how they apply (More indepth with some cool ghosting patterns to learn)
2. Creative Theory and examples. How to build a fill or a beat of your own (Or likely something that might have been done before just that you don't know. This would be great to get the creative sides of the new drummers thinking)
3. A lesson that I find useful in my playing would be if you made something showing how to move a voice (Drum) around in a standard pattern to make a whole new feel. I will move one or more notes in a straight groove to make it completely different.
4. Gigging, What to expect what to bring, how to warm-up how to de-stress.
5. Auditioning prep.
6. Pratice routine creation. (What to do or maybe what type of things to work on) Detailed reasons for what you are doing, say if you suggest an odd metered pattern you could explain about how it is working on your limb independance.
7. Recording drums, maybe explain sound waves and damping.
8. Confidence building.
9. Recovery. I.e... Dropping sticks, missing beats, getting lost etc...
10. COWBELL more cowbell
11. Drum Presence... In my experience as a guitarist. Very few drummers knew what presense the music required of the drums. Most just has one presense and that was it. I guess I am speaking beyond dynamics and mostly to the original bands and not a cover band.
12. Session work, how to prepare/how to audition
13. How to improve your natural timing. (exercises to tighten you up)
Some of these might have actually been done but this was from personal experience of what I need as a beginning drummer. As in your pack, it would be nice to be able to build your skills in a step lesson fashion. So maybe website change for the lessons page and present it in a format of do this first before you move on to this.
Thanks for allowing user input and good luck.

I've been a drummer for many years now, and I've seen just about every "how to tune your drums" video out there.
I know how to tune them, but the problem that none of the videos talk about is: what is your drums (Mainly Toms) suppose to sound like after theyâ€™re tuned?
If you would be able to post a video on your FreeDrumLessons site showing what your drums should sound like depending on the style you would like to play (Rock, Metal, Punk, Jazz, etc...). That would be really appreciated, and Iâ€™m sure lots of drummers would profit from that.

I don't actually have the set or cymbals that I want. I just put my favorites.
I'm now officially a drum teacher and music guru!!
