You may be able to count to four when playing guitar, but drumming and guitar playing are two completely different animals. I would say they have absolutely no bearing on each other.

You're just noticing their not so subtle ideological inconsistencies now? At the end of the day, everyone's a capitalist.... even third rate communist chic rap rock musicians.

You say you play metal? If you're trying to work toward having a traditional "big" metal kit....... I say go for the tom since your complaint about your hats seems to be minor at best.

That's a pretty nice snare.
