I've recently sold my drum kit to buy a new 7-string ( ), but have kept my sticks and practice pad. My question is whether or not I can keep playing "air drums" per say, while doing snare work on my pad, and still be improving my skill for when I buy another set one day?

I really love my drumming and don't want to stop until I get my new set.

I'm glad he handled it calmly. Joe Satriani should realize that with only 7 notes in the world, some songs are going to sound similar.

Change your sig. You don't play drums anymore. Smooth move to sell your drums if you love it.

I'm not sure if you will get any better persay, but it couldn't hurt. It may help you with keeping rhythm on guitar, and keeping your drumming up to speed, but I can't see any advancement with it.

i sold my guitar
will practicing on my kitchen mop still enable me to improve my skill?


Can't see why not. Keep to Sex Pistols and it won't make a difference.

I went 2 months without playing on a proper kit, just using a practice pad, and when I got back behind a kit it took me a few minutes to get used to it and then I was back to normal. Shouldn't do you any harm really.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

I'm a drummer and I use my pad all the time. If you practice your rudiments on it, yes, you will improve. It will only improve your hands though.

depends on how good you are, you can improve on a practice pad up to a certain level though.

I hate to say it but buy guitar hero world tour.

At least then you'll still get minor practice and being used to hitting things.
