RE: FORUM MEMBERS: Computer Geeks or Music Freaks???
Both here. My degree is in IT. I own/run an IT services company in Atlanta.
I've played drums for about 24 years and I think I'm better than most hobbyists. I also play some guitar, bass, keys, and I sing. I think singing is the strongest of the remaining ones, then the others are equally poor. I can get by at home by myself with enough attempts, but I won't play any of them live. I also have beenplaying the drums at church for the last 15 years or so, along with recording a number of CDs in pro studios for said church. Anyway - I'm not a pro, but I'm not a slouch on my main instrument. I bang around on the rest for fun and my own edification.
I can out-tech most techs I've met.
