I've never had a drum set before. In fact aside from a Djembe drum and a few items like a tambourine, I've never had drums in my possession. I liked the fun of making noise and playing percussive instruments but not dealing with a full drum kit.

Keeping the pulse or beat in a set must be highly difficult for a drummer. You not only are tasked with keeping time for the group but have to throw in extra ornamentation like hi hats runs and a bass drum beat and other things...just thinking on the level coordination required makes me feel a tad dizzy.
