Default Re: Expressive Drumming, ever come across this?

I came across this a few times in my last group, they had a few ballads and such. Personally ballads have always bored me, even before I was a drummer. Shoot, before I was a musician. My first experience playing drums in a group was at my last church so there were a lot of slower songs. I suppose this gave me a firm foundation for how to play to a ballad and not overplay.

The most important thing I learned from this setting was that it's ok to NOT play if the song doesn't need drums. I'm no Meg White :-P
Classy grip all day.
