  • 40 years to get a kit : now let's purdie shuffle

    It is the place to introduce himself. So here it is.
    I just got 40 and a TD-20 as I have always dreamed to play drum.
    I started to get lessons.
    Someone please tell me that it is not too late to be able to play the purdie shuffle and the John bonham Fool In The Rain before I die :-)

    Cheers from Paris.

    Welcome to the Forum !!! Remember no matter what you learn to play
    on your kit the point of drumming is to relax and have FUN. Never too
    old to learn and to have fun on the drum kit !!!!!! Enjoy your TD-20 !! E

      Welcome to the forum!
      Never too late to shuffle. Funny you mention it....I've been working recently on trying to get comfortable playing it. What I concentrate on is basically doing triplets. RRL RRL (right hand hihat, left hand snare ghost notes). The bass drum is where I have the most trouble but getting better. Good Luck!

      Oh, and don't forget to watch the man demonstrate it himself!

          That's interesting. I do OK on the Purdie Shuffle until I try to do the quarter notes on the hihat!

                It's not too late at all! You might want to start with something a little simpler, but you can get there from 40.

                      Well hello youngster!!! Welcome to the world of drumming. I myself am soon to be 42!!!!!!!!!! You are never to old to start playing. Keep in mind you need to find time to practice and if there is someone around, maybe take some lessons from an instructor.


                      Good luck!!!

                        Do a youtube search on Jeff Porcaro and see his explanation of the song Rosanna in which he uses a hybrid of the Purdie shuffle and the shuffle from Fool in the Rain.

                          Hi Jakin. Welcome to the site mate.

                          Like most things, the earlier you start, the easier it is, and drumming is no different.

                          I started seriously in my early teens and gigged for 25 years. I then laid off for 20 years but am now trying to get back into it. Because I know what I need to do and what I use to do it's really making me struggle at times. In a way your better off starting late with a clean sheet.

                          Im not sure what you actually want to achieve but bear in mind that playing the drums and being a drummer are two totally different things. The only way to be a drummer is to be able to cut it in a band. Its a whole different ball game. Theres loads more you need to know and be able to do when your live infront of an audience.

                          Anyway, have fun and dont get yourself bogged down practicing rudiments all day. Its not that important. Enjoyment is the bottom line

                            You can do anything you put your mind to. And no, it is not too late. I have played for 28 years and not until now do I actually bother to practice paradiddles... the rest of the time, I simply played without them.
                            Ask not whether something is useful -- ask what it is useful for.

                            Roland TD-12, Iron Cobra hihat stand and bass-drum pedal from TAMA. My accoustic kit is a Yamaha Power-V Birch with Paiste Alpha-series splashes, crashes, and hihat. My ride is a Zildjan Ping Ride, 20" I think.

                            Check out my TD-12 on Youtube. My page is here http://www.youtube.com/HerlPearl.
