Do you have to be talented to play Drums?

These days people are so concerned about talent.  Most times people talk themselves out of doing things they want because they don’t have everything figured out.  But it’s the DESIRE that matters, not talent.  It’s beyond my comprehension how many times I’ve heard the saying “oh I don’t have the talent”.  I’d be a rich man if I had a penny for every time I’ve heard that.  Yet these people are the same individuals that have gone on to be accepted into prestigious music colleges, become professional drummers, and take the drumming world by storm.  Most people don’t take ACTION! ACTION! ACTION!  Regardless of talent. Practice! Practice! Practice! Not Netflix & Chill!!!

It’s an insecurity trying to have everything figured out before you start.  Stop it!  It’s a load of crap!  Just start.  Even if you’re uncomfortable, just start.  You’ll thank yourself later.  Nothing comes from nothing.  Action comes from action.  It’s a simple formula, but it works.
