Fantastic! A lady beating the drums is not a new thing... but it depends on where you live. If you live in a place where such things are rare,, then people will be shocked to see you beating the drums. But if you are in a metropolitan city, its another story.

Only three in the whole City? that strange! And you are one of them. You probably know how to play very well. Thats very good of you. You should try to promote your skill by organazing live concerts, shows, etc. Good once !!!

Lady drummers are normal these days. But someone who can do blast beats and double pedals would be cool. Only she would be sweating a lot and that's a little uncool. Hehehe... May myspace ba yung band mo maxinne?

The christian band that my friends formed has a lady drummer and she rocks! She also plays the drums every sunday at church and noones surprised, although at some concerts some people are a little surprised to see a girl behind the drums... and that is till she starts drumming and their jaws drop!! I stay in India!!! I think its cool!

I think lady drummers are really cool. Diana Freese of Junior Kilat, Ria Bautista of Paramita, to name just a few. Plus, girls behind drum kits really look cute.

I think there's nothing wrong with it. In fact, I would love to have the opportunity to learn drumming too - yes, I am a lady.

I think that's awesome. In fact, I need a drummer. Wanna rock? Personally, it doesn't matter to me if a musician is male or female - so long as the music is good - I can dig it. Do you have a way of recording yourself? If so, maybe I could lay down rhythm & lead guitar tracks on it to make a song. You can listen to me play on MySpace. The link to my artist page is in my profile. But I warn you - my tunes are warped & twisted just like I am. ;0)

At my high school there were a couple of other girl drummers (one of whom was far better than me), so it wasn't so weird that I played the drums. I also live in a really progressive city where it's not uncommon to see girl drummers. There are still quite a few people, though, who are surprised when I tell them I used to play! I'd like to get a drumset and get my skills back, but I'm a poor college student.

yes ofcourse it's just ok for a lady to be a drummer. my sister also plays the drums, and whenever we go to gigs in ortigas and eastwood libis here in the philippines it never fails that men approach her and ask her where did she learn to rock on like what she always does. it's really a very easy way to attract men. lol.

that is great, actually i admire girls on drums. do you know valley of chrome, when they were just starting they have girl on drums. actually girls on drums this day is not that surpricing since i have seen so many rock bands that have girl on guitar, drummer, and bassist.
