Learning to play another instrument
« Reply #15 on: December 06, 2010, 06:29:42 AM »
About 3 years ago I bought a drum kit and started having lessons and I continue to this day. When I started my first lesson I did not even know how to hold the sticks. It was refreshing because I had no bad habits to get rid of, something I have really struggled with on guitar. My drumming has really helped me tighten up my timekeeping on guitar and I can now read rhythms very well.

I've always had pretty good timing with my guitar playing, but I also have practiced to a drum machine for the last ten years. I like drumming because it's more like being on auto pilot than playing the guitar is.
