Re: List of things you have to master to be a good drummer
Looks like you answered your own question in your example.
Do you mean a good rock drummer? Jazz drummer? All around, and all styles mastered? Then I would have to ask you to define what is considered "good".
I play in a rock band and I do a pretty good job of it, but I haven't mastered my rudiments yet. Working on it...
