Default Re: A warning to potential drummers

I also do the same I catch myself zoned on the drummer, but the reason is simple.

We are all striving to be better and learn new things, by watching the drummer you can do a few things.

You can see where you compaire to the drummer playing, also you can find new ideas and spawn motiviation for your playing, new fills, sticking patterns, grooves, kit setup ect...

Theres tons of things you can get by just watching the drummer, and im sure all of this applies to guitarists, singers, bass players ect, you love your instrument and you want to take in all you can when you are givin the opportunity.
