  • Sadly i must take a break from drumming

    2 months ago i got a 2 month notice to move because we are getting demovicted in other words the house is being torn down for redevelopment and unfortunately the city i live in is going through a housing crisis and since we were unable to find a place i now have to throw everything in storage and live in a motel and hope i can find something before summer rates kick in. Once that happens if i don't find a place then i will be homeless and that will mean selling everything ,quitting my job and starting over in a new city with somewhere to rent. So i am forced to give up drumming for idk how long. I don't expect anyone to care i just need to vent right now because typing this here helps my head deal with it a little better.

      So far, you win in the " worst way to end the year" category.
      I wish you the best of luck in your endeavor to maintain. It sounds like a real nightmare.

                One option you could have is to join a church/worship ensemble for a while. They can use the talent, and you get a place to store your drums, play them pretty much at will, and perhaps keep it going until things improve. I am serious.

                  UPDATE: almost ended up homeless ,it came down to the last day but i got a place however its very small and theres no way i can play my drums there and theres no room for them anyway so my drums are in storage until i eventually find a place where i can have them but at least i'm not homeless so small victories

                    good news.. you can still do your job .. some day you'll get back in a 'luxury' situation again.. (that's all it is..)
                    and nobody / nothing can make you stop practicing though.. you can still work on a lot of things with just a pad and sticks..
                    (and don't 'really' need pedals for feet..) one time i didn't have a practice room /or an e kit.. and then i joined a band who had
                    a private practice room.. after a month or so.. i got my own key.. and could practice there ..

                      Hi, I understand a bit how you can feel. I can't live in my own home since near 2 year now. I am forced to live at my parents home and find the little place to put my own stuff where I can. I have manage (with difficulty) with them to put my e-drum in the only place I could (in the basement, sad room where it's very cold when I drum there, not heater possible too).

                      All that because I have been buying a house with "hidden problems" and I am in justice now and it will takes long time and lot of money.(but it seems on the good way slowly).

                      Try to keep positive mindset, read a bit of "philosophy" (stoicism, etc) and breathe. In short, manage yourself to not be crazy and keep strong.

                      Best wishes


                      edit: use practice pads. You can develop awesome chops for when you will play again. Maybe get a hi-hat too, it take little room if you can. Bass drum on the sofa (have seen that) and play on different pillow for moving around, etc. Play also with music tracks if you feel bored sometimes. there is special tracks for rudiment I have read.

                        You have a roof over your head mate, that's the main thing. The rest will follow gradually. Keep the faith

                              Good to hear you at least have a roof over your head! Good luck anyway! Maybe a practice pad can "keep you busy", and allow you to work on some technique / keep your technique on level.
