Time keeping is very important....it's very important to stay on point and not overplay and that is not always easy....allowing the vocabulary to reveal itself over time, while keeping time, is not...

Re: Modern Drummer March 2014 issue - why do they do this?

I enjoyed this MD list and, for what it is worth, I agree with most of the names on there. However, I was surprised not to see Ian Paice....or did I miss it??

Re: Want to go to Berklee for Music Ed degree - unrealistic?

Re: I don't know whether to take this tour or not

If drumming professionally has been your goal, i don't think there is any way you can put a value on the new contacts, more eyes on your playing and the diversification.

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

Gear is overrated. One does not need an expensive shell pack, or just the right so and so heads, wood composition, etc, etc to get great drum sounds. A basic pearl vision or similar can sound great...

Re: Chili Peppers should have stayed home.

Interesting thoughts.

I don't mean this in a negative way, just an indifferent way, but I'm not a fan of the RHCP. I recognize they are very talented though. I've recently become very impressed...

Hi there Todd,
