    OK seriously. A brand new drummer on a forum that dates back many several years, and he scored the screen name Gretsch Drummer?! Really, nobody thought of that till now?

    Welcome! :) Glad to have you here. I myself have only been drumming 38 years, and still don’t have it right! You’ll fit right in.

    Welcome Gretschdrummer!
    I've been playing for like 35 years and was out of playing for like 10 years. Just got back in it a few months ago. Same as you, I decided to join after looking around. I tried some other forums and didn't like it. The people seemed bothered, condescending and sometimes just plain rude. Here people have been nice and helpful. Thanks for joining us!

    Welcome.I think he may have scored gretsch drummer because as I remember there was time where you could not type the word gretsch in this forum without it being altered
