Default Re: Video: Gospelchops - Shedding....

I have a couple good friends who are gospel drummers and really into this sort of stuff. They have crazy chops and can do all sorts of stuff I can't, but I do think it's often overplaying and lacking in dynamics, however I do come from a very different camp of drumming. When they're playing with groups it's not all fill-fest but it still is often very busy. If you see guys like Teddy Campbell performing they play some absolutely ridiculous fills. Very talented drummers but a lot of it is just flashy and indeed gets boring after a while. I also find that a lot of them aren't very well rounded and really only play well and tastefully in certain contexts.
