    Anyone here play the drums on their steering wheel, dashboard, gearstick or whatever whilst driving? I was driving home tonight and I thought I was shit-hot on the steering wheel.

    Is there anyone else and who's style do you model yourself on?

    Sorry this is not a bush/belladonna thread.

    I tap on my computer desk and all the desks at school. I'm pretty good if I do say so myself.

    Dude, in my own mind, I am the best damn air bassist around. I'm pretty good at drunk singing too. I like to consider myself an original though. I have zero rythm for drums. I couldn't keep time to save my life.

    I open the window in the car (normally at traffic lights) and play a few guitar cords on the outside door (you know, the side part)... do a lead riff, give the horns and by then the light turns green.

    WOW!:headbang: I've never thought of opening my window to play some 'Crunching Chords', it's a bit too cold at the moment.

    My husband is a notorious car drummer. It gets annoying when he uses the brake/accelorator as a bass drum pedals.

    I noticed you don´t fight about Bella or Bush in this thread.


    I refuse to play any Bush-era songs on car interiors.

    I thought I was the only one who did that. :tickled: Glad to see I'm not alone. Although in saying that, I can play drums, air guitar AND air bass on my steering wheel. Beat that MoFos. :D

    In saying that, not all at the same time. That would be dangerous.

    Very much so. Its all in the technique. I tend to not use a pick for bass. ;)

    Some years ago the van at work had cruise control, so I used to play the bass drums all the time... Now I don´t even have a car. :cry:
