Default Re: My new DRUM! article

That was short and sweet. I agree totally. I've played in a few original bands, but lately I've been playing in a mostly cover band. I always try to learn the song as close as I can to the original. My bands that I've been a part of in recent yrs. think I'm a great drummer. (I don't think so) I'm just trying to mimic what I hear on the original recording. Quite often I can't really play what the original drummer is playing, so I play something that I can pull off that sounds similar. Stick to the original, that's what the people want to hear. They may not know the drum parts but they can tell the song isn't right. Nice article, with good info that makes sense. It's great that your ideas and drum knowledge get published. Congrats.
