    could play

    Hello

    I was really into it at first and then it started to wear off beacuse I could only play on that bloody pad.

    --- Does it mean that he was only allowed to play on the drum head with a pad on it ????

    That sounds like the most likely explanation.

    However all the sentence explains is that it was only possible for him to play on the pad; the reason for this is not stated. More context is needed.

    Can you quote more of the text?
