Re: Jojo Mayer...again
I can see him being self taught with the guidance of Chapin and Morello. When you have a teacher, they fill you in on the technical aspect of drumming far as technique etc..... I believe he can read cause he knows quite a bit about time signatures and playing different shuffles. It explains how he was able to decypher buddy riches tricks and execute them flawlessly. Self taught musicians may know how to play polygon rhythms, but playing them differently isn't necessarily going to be a strong point. On the sabian omni page, he demonstrates some crazy polygon rhythm rolls and when I first heard them I'm like crap piss because it was sick how he did it. I forgot which song it was though.
