I took drum lessons in elementry school.
My parents made me.
I didn't want to.
So I figured, what was the most non-musical, easiest instrument that I could learn.
I picked the drums.
It turns out that the drums are not easy to learn. You've got to learn to read music and learn different drum beats.
I got a wooden drum pad to practice at home.
Hitting the drumsticks on that pad was no fun. The pad made a little 'thud' when you hit it with the drumstick. So I turned the pad over nad his the drumsticks on the wooden base. Ahhh. That made some noise.
I don't remember much about drum lessons other than the fact that I quit soon after starting.
