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

Technique is a tool, nothing else, you either possess loads or very little, it helps to play what you "feel".
Yes but without it you can't always play what you feel.

I also disagree with the 10 different drummers statement. Session guys make a living of being able to mimmic certain drummers feel.
It IS possible and complete command of their technique opens up that doorway for them.

Sorry if that sounds snotty, I don't mean it that way. It's just my opinion.
I like my drum sound fat and simple. Just like me.
