    How to play the drums

    This is a vague question, but if you want to know how to hold the drumsticks, I have a guide on traditional and matched grip.

    Hope it helps.

    1) Understand tempo and rhythm.
    2) Get a good grip on the drumsticks.
    3) Hit the drums. (Without hurting yourself.)
    4) Feel the groove.

    You can do these by:

    A) Learning from books, DVDs and online resources. (Drummerworld and its forum is a great place to go. Tommy Igoe's Great Hands for A Lifetime is a great technique DVD released this year, 2010.)


    B) Getting a drum teacher who'll teach you the above (properly). Find one who's qualified to teach. One with many years of performing and teaching experience is desirable.

    I'd recommend both A and B.
