Subject: Hello EIIR.....!
Thanks for the links!.....
I am a drummer whose music education started with my mom's collect of Polish Polka music, followed by my dad's Square Dance and Western preference. My uncle even fed me plenty of Big Band genre music where some awesome drummers sealed my obsession. Blues, Rock, Metal, Pop helped me refine my own style which lives on today. In other words, I am very open to anyone's taste!
I am very pleased to meet you in person (kinda, as in this isn't REALLY in person, but plenty close enough)! Ha! "Cream of the crop you say"! You did notice I came in AFTER everyone else here! (LOL).
I've wandered down through some threads to gauge my behavior here and wonder how I will ever match the intellect! Note, the dictionary may have to become my best friend! Any thought provoking tirade from me will surprise me much more than it will anyone else! (hahaha).
I refrain from politics and religion as I don't do well conveying my opinion. I have no desire to try to convince anyone my methods would work for them. Everyone has their own path to follow for what works for them. I'm not even sure my way of thinking is the right way! I'd sure feel bad if I did get a follower and find out I was totally wrong! Hence, you won't see me making any spectacular speeches. That is not to say I didn't enjoy the few conversations I read from Sir H, Chewie and yourself! I think I am still formulating my own final being.
I appreciate the welcome very much! Hopefully, I'll fit in here despite my short comings. Thanks again.
