But first, a note about email lists...

There are lots of lists devoted to the many different forms of hand drumming, the lists on this page are only a sample. After joining any list I suggest you lurk for a while and read the messages before posting so you can get a feel of how the list operates. I urge you to think before sending a "me-too" email to any list. That's a big netiqutte no-no. Remember, there can be hundreds and even thousands of people on any given list - they do not want to hear you say "me too" in response to someone's post. Nor does anyone want to read email that should really be addressed to a specific person. So please make an attempt not to send a response meant for an individual to the whole list, instead address it to the person you are typing to. When sending your message to a list be as complete as possible. Be sure to use your subject header as you would a headline - Who,What, Where, When. And use the body of your email for all pertinent details. Remember to include your city, state, province, country, etc., to locate your event. lists are read by people all over the world so be specific.
And remember: never send attachments to any list!
