Default Re: Who here plays a different instrument in addition to drums?

I play several instruments. I found that it did give me opportunities to grow musically.
And having a better understanding of the other elements in music; having perspective
from the guitarists point of view, and the ability to adapt to the other players.

On the other side: I wasn't playing with anyone while I was writing my own material,
composing all the pieces myself. And what I found there is that I was so acclimated
to my style, that I had become sloppy on some technique that I would use playing
music with different people.

So the thing I would suggest is to find a sparring partner.
Someone who may be a guitarist or bassist, but shows some interest
in drums. That way you can still compliment the other musicians.
