I taught myself how to play the drums by going out and buying a kit. A local music shop was going out of business because of some IRS problems and everything was dirt cheap. I got an excellent drum kit for like $250. It barely fit in my car.
I went home, set it up and put on some AC/DC. When i could play every song from Back in Black, I moved to Billy Squier, The Police, Zeppelin, then right to Yes and Rush. About a year later my neighbor was home from college and heard me playing Rush and came over to ask me where I studied and was dumbfounded that i was self-taught. He had been playing drums since he was 10 yrs old and went to school for it in NYC. (He currently owns a Drum School) Always thought that was a great compliment.
I still can't read a single note of drum sheet music but i can play anything i hear.
Just do it!
Check with beersk he is the pro drummer, I'm sure he has some tips!
Well, regarding the UDS, I say for the money it is the only way to go. Its relatively cheap to build and it is very fuel efficient. You only need a couple of pounds of charcoal and wood chunks for up to a twenty hour cook. Once you get the hang of using one it is basically set it and forget it. The fire box is contained in the drum while you cook so the fire risk is very very low, no big deal to load it up and then go to bed, in the morning it will be cookin away at the same temp, check it then go to work, when you get home that 20 pound packer brisket will be ready and cooked to perfection.Maybe I will be there before you! don't sweat the beer. We will invite bluesman and drink his beer. I hear it is better than Sam Adams. Just got to buy some Bear Claws.
If Ron comes up and or when I build my own UDS I will post how too pics with a tutorial on how to do it.
It really is very easy to set one up and sooo worth it!
And yes, I do owe you some beer, just haven't brewed any in a while. Its my crazy time of year.
