This is what gets me in these stories...
I must be the only drummer here who
a) can only just read drum music
b) doesn't know that much music terminology.
Yet I'm a f**king good drummer in my own right...
My band play a cross between thrash metal (Anthrax / Megadeth / Slayer) and groove-oriented stuff (Pantera, White Zombie, Anihilator), our guitarists can read tab, I can just read drum music but don't care to.
Jamming is 100% the reason we write songs.
