comment How to determine time signature of drum tab?
The time limit on editing prevents me from fixing the above, but here's where I was going - in 5/4 you can count along like this: 1 2 3 4 5 | 1 2 3 4 5 | 1 2 3 4 5 | 1 2 3 4 5 |... Or listen to Pink Floyd's Money - most of it is in 7/4 - you can count along like this: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 | 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 | 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 | 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 |

comment How to determine time signature of drum tab?
No, a specific time signature does not imply accents on specific notes. It simply indicates how the rhythm pattern repeats, i.e., how many beats in a bar. So 4/4 has 4 quarter notes per bar; 5/8 has 5 eighth notes per bar, and so on. Thus, you can count along to a rhythm in 4/4 like this: 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 and so on. In 5/4

comment Practicing drums with metronome and not hearing it's tick
Hi Vic, I just meant it's a good thing, unless you're specifically going for an "ahead of the beat" or "behind the beat" feel.

comment Should I retrain myself to be a right handed drummer?
Move a ride cymbal to the left side of the kit and keep on playing open-handed. Billy Cobham, Simon Phillips, Carter Beauford, Lenny White are some of my favourite open-handed drummers. The wikipedia page I linked above lists about 50 open-hand players.
