Default Re: I'm just a "feel" drummer so I don't need technique, right?

It's like deja vu all over again.

My "groove" drumming was on a serious plateau for a long time, and what I realized was that I was missing some technique in my playing.

Things are drastically improving now that I woodshed a couple hours a week on my pad doing Stick Control type exercises, which I've never really done much of before. My beat/fill repertoire has expanded a lot. I'm even more motivated to play and even more confident with my drumming now because these extra capabilities are available to me.

So, yeah, learn some technique. No doubt about it. Like Uncle Larry is saying...Balance.
