How did the Foo Fighters front man, Dave Grohl, learn to play the drums and guitar so well? The answer is really simple. Listen to him explain it in this interview video.
Like most rock musicians growing up, Dave Grohl didn’t want to take thing slow by going to expensive lessons everyday. He wanted to Rock right f*cking now! So what did he do? After one lesson he said screw it, and taught himself. He explains how much more gratifying and satisfying it was to learn things on your own, and sit back and see that you got back all the hard work you put in.
Now this isn’t a knock in any way to musicians that have taken years of lessons. Some of the raddest Rock and metal Musicians have attended prestigious music schools like the Musicians Institute. You can’t help but connect with the part where Dave describes the example of not wanting to read the directions, and just learn by doing instead.
Watch Dave Grohl explain how he learned to play guitar and drums on his own, and how it eventually would lead him to playing in two of the most influential Rock bands in history in the video interview below.
