Well, i believe, it's pretty classic situation. I'm left-handed person that went to a right-handed teacher in order to learn some drumming. I'm being told that we'll be playing open-handed on a RH setup in future (I had no point, what does it mean on that moment). I agreed and we started.
Almost 2 years in, I am able to play some not really hard drum solos. Progressing isn't easy, but it is progressing.
However, when it came to drum-kit, I was playing usual "cross-hands" on that setup. Teacher said that he decided to go on this way. Ooookay, but I did my own research and found all this info about LH setup. And after that doubts went into my head.
What if my progress will be faster and more natural if I switch to LH setup? Teacher recommended staying in RH-crossed way. But I wanted to give it a try and took some break to test it on my electronic drumset at home.
Now I'm relearning everything from scratch with LH-setup. Cannot say it feels super-easy, but definitely goes faster than RH kit learning. But it could be just overall experience, not setup. I'm still in testing state, and I feel, that it's time to choose.
There are many opinions on the internet and I could'n find one definitive answer to my doubts.
I'll be playing at home only, so there is no "that guy on shared kit" pro-reason of a RH kit.
Found one interesting material about teaching drums for a LH people.
Quote: "Also, once a student has established his kit setup it should not be changed as this can also create problems".
So question, finally: is it worth switching now? Or just relax and go on with RH setup?
