Default Re: So, what is it with Steve Gadd

Since when didn't Gadd have chops? Two words: microtiming and dynamics. He's one of those guys who knows how to fill the rythmic space with notes for sure, but instead of filling it all, he decides to just play couple of the most tastiest notes he could play. I could listen to his "brushes on a cardboard box"-youtube clip for ages.

Chops are first, then there's taste and then there's Gadd.
