99% of drummers can cover anything. But only a select few great drummers can actually MAKE the awesome drumming the others are covering. You know what makes a great drummer? Not the speed or anything like that, or the ability to do something someone has done be4, like following an instruction sheet on how to build a toy helicopter. Its the creativity; being able to write the actual drumming, actually write it, not just play it when someone else has written it. Hell i can play alot of Dream Theatre and A7X stuff, but im not a great drummer, im mediocre at best, but the reason i can do the drumming is because its already been done. Im simply following the arrows when i drum DT or A7X songs.

Everyone think about that ^-^
