I've been thinking about switching over and playing drums from guitar, I would still play guitar, but divide the amount of time I spend playing with drums.
Is this a good or bad idea?

On second thought, **** tuning forks. You best be carrying around a grand piano that was tuned by an Italian

Why would expanding your musical horizons be a bad thing?
Catch me,
heal me,
Lift me back up to the Sun
I choose to live

Yeah. You could record albums and do everything on them that way. And it gives you a better idea of how to interact in a band situation. Although be careful; drummers can spontaneously explode whilst on stage! (5 points for the reference people- it's as old as the hills )

I started on drums and moved on to guitar, I still play drums but no where near as mch, but I'll always be a drummer at heart, it rocks!

Choose one and focus on it.

If you try and do both, you probably won't improve in either.

tap! tap! tap!

to OP: i'm considering the same thing. I've always been interested in drumming (apparently when i was 5 i wanted to play drums and my mum insisted a violin upon me instead).

I got no experience apart from watching my friend drum when we jam though haha.

Yes indeedy And if anyone didn't know that, then shame on you Go out and buy the film NOW!

And again I reiterate, TS, you should try out drumming. If you wanted to drum but got made to play violin, it seems like you deserve to get a bit of payback on your mum. And I can't think of a better way than to practice on the instrument that every parent hates into the night

should probably be careful while gardening aswell

I wouldnt worry about it. I would give yourself a chance. The minute you feel a little burnt out with guitar doesnt mean you need to switch instruments all together....just give yourself some time to get the spark back again....you probably just played to much all at once
