Re: I'm just a "feel" drummer so I don't need technique, right?
you guys are killing me. first of all, define "technique". are you referring to physical capability? or different ways of approaching the art of drumming mentally? are you saying that "feel" is mental only? one affects the other, and with only one or the other, the drummer is incomplete. all drummers have both, in varying proportion. that's what makes it invalid to say "this guy's better than that guy", or "feel is more important than technique". without chops, the drummer is boring and governed by his physical limitations. without feel, the drummer is lacking groove.
