An natural ambidextrous quality would certainly lead to fast chops, but such things can surely be taught, especially with left-handers. It is the nature of people to want to switch lefty drummers to right handed for a number of practical reasons. Therefore, many southpaw drummers become trained in ambidextrous behaviors. That is why their left hands sound so fast. they actually ARE left handed.
