Well I think everyone can agree that if the drummer, or anyone else in the band, doesn't have good time keeping skills it will suck! I like the point of an orchestra. I use to play percussion toys in an orchestra-crash cymbal, wind chimes, triangle and simple snare parts so you are tacit the majority of time-just keep time and follow each measure untill your part comes. A note off and you get the conductor gleam of death, but it is amazing just how beautiful something so simple as a single triangle note can be at just that right moment. At Christmas I loved playing the sleigh bells-there is a correct way to play them I discovered. But everyone is tacit as some point and just following along-you play your "notes" only when required (hey I like the sound of that-I'm making that my new motto" lol. Play your notes only when required. maybe some radioactive signs on either side to get my attention.
