Hi, I'm Tracy Smith from Cincinnati, OH. I really had no interest in playing music until the age of 29 when I sat down at my husband's drum kit one day and asked him to show me a beat. After that first boom-bop, I was hooked ... but there was one problem. I'm a leftie and his kit was set up for a right-handed player. So, I invested in my own kit -- including a leftie double-bass pedal, not the easiest thing to find -- and have been playing ever since. I'm still pretty new, and learning every day, but I love it! I've been playing for about five years now and, in the past few months, have started on some originals. I have a long way to go but am excited to see the progress I've made so far. Thank you for listening!
