Default Re: So, what is it with Steve Gadd

Watch that video again, and ask yourself which drummer sounds the most like he is playing a song.

THAT is what makes Steve Gadd so amazing.

Literally anyone could learn how to do what the other two do in that battle...with enough time and practice. That's not to take away from their performances, which are all incredible...but it's just really amazingly fast complex techniques being executed perfectly. Only Gadd manages to include amazing technique, etc, but still make it sound like a song. That's something that you just have or you don't...you can't train a muscle to make yourself hear songs better.
