And that's why a drummer could never replicate the playing of Vinnie or Weckl; their sound is based as much on a combination of chops and feel as Gadd's is. Vinnie's sound, for example, is so unmistakable, not because of the chops he plays but for the time feel he has.
That said, putting in many hours a day for years may well put your playing in the same kind of esteem as Vinnie's - you're playing would develop it's own feel.
