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.
Very true, and well said. I guess my point was more that Gadd's feel is the more impressive of the three (in my, and from the sound of it, most of our, opinion)...but you are absolutely right, all those drummers have their own well developed unique feel.
