Default Re: What makes a good musician?

Good question.

I think it's more than one thing--improvisation--and also knowing when to not play or let out., good feel/rhythm(not just for drummers) and along with that a sense of time and tempo, being able to play more than one style and mixed it up--not just play one style and limit yourself to that but sort of mix different styles, accents&dynamics go with groove, a good ability to harmonize. an ability to play your instrument--whether it's playing up to speed on drums or knowing chords or notes and being able to make them up...

It's so many things.
