ABOUT

I have been playing around for 8 years..

When I was in high school one of my best friend introduced me to to listen some Pantera and Slayer songs. Afterwards when I got to hear one of their songs titled "ART OF SHREDDING" and "Angel of Death " at that time it generated a greater drive in me and my passion towards metal music which augmented to a greater extent and suddenly those double bass drumming styles by #VinniePaul and Dave inspired me a lot !!!
Lombardo really motivated me to be a drummer..

EQUIPMENT

I personally don't own a drum set. Whatever and wherever I practice drums is with my chair and pillows respectively. You can call that as a SHADOW DRUMMING..It really helps me a lot. Honestly this so called "Shadow plays an integral role in developing my double bass-playing feet. I just always think its really powerful when youre doing any particular hand fill, if you throw the double bass constantly under it, it just beefs up the power of it, and I like to go back and forth between my cymbals and my hands while keeping the double bass patterns underneath it, and attaching cymbals, a splash or a ride, to the double kick,

Equipments - I use Vic Firth 2B sticks and have a Vater practice pad by which I practice all sorts of hands fills/rudiments for a better and nicer finger control and precision and borrow Zildjian /Meinl cymbals in all gigs and recordings as I really love them because they go with my style but I personally don't have any cymbals...Cheers :)
