I started playing punk rock and metal (if you could call it that) in high school. Taught myself kit drumming and eventually started a psychadelic rock/blues band with a couple of friends.
I still play with my old bass player, 20+ years later. He will usually rock a baritone guitar or fire up the Moog Grandmother through the pedal rig.
My brother plays an AK, DN, or D-05 depending on what mood he’s in. He’s also responsible for recording our tracks in Live.
I will run a DFAM into a DT and just live record trigs and mess with onboard FX and LFOs.
If I’m feeling like a workout, I have a decent electronic kit that I’ll play and we get more of a live feel that way.
We all play to a click through headphones. Everything that needs to be synced is slaved to an ERM Multiclock.
I love our jam sessions - it is a weekly ritual that we all need to take a breather from work/kids.
Old bass player usually takes the reins on starting us off with a sweet riff (unless I get a fire beat going before that), and then my brother finds a hook while I start layering said fire beat.
Super fun and I don’t think I would trade our time together for anything.
EDIT: Also I would say that after making music with these talented dudes, it’s really difficult for me to finish a project by myself. We are just so much better as parts of a whole.
