Should drummers call themselves musicians?
Wanted to get a consensus on this. Just because we play a musical instrument, does that define us as being a musician.
Say if your a drummer that only plays the drums/drumset, would one consider themself to be a musician? What if you also played a, woodwind, brasswind, or stringed instrument, along with a drum/drumset, would that qualify you as being a musician?
You know the old joke,"Who do drummers hang out with?"
So what qualifies us as drummers, to be considered as musicians?
I'm curious to hear your thoughts on this.
