Prolly been a few threads about this, but anyways. I got an electronic drum kit yesterday. An Alesis DM8. I'll be teaching myself, and I have the kit set up so I can play comfortably, and programmed in a kit that sounds good. Now to really get to learning (besides just a couple 4/4 beats). Where/how do I start in properly teaching myself to play, and improve? I have some basic stuff down and started learning "Strange Times" by The Black Keys. But I kinda wanna backtrack and properly teach myself technique and such instead of just jumping into songs. Any tips?
Here's a thread from a few days ago, has everything you need to be able to get started.
