Default one word to describe your playing style

well the title says it all. whats the one word to describe your playing style? i'll start: groove.

and by the way to avoid the 20 character limit just write your one word, press period, then hit the space bar a bunch of times. press period again and it should work. it works for me anyway.

According to my guitarist whom has played with many hard rock drummers I'm the most "effiecient" and "relaxed" drummer he has ever played with...think I'd rather hear him say your the "best" I ever played with instead though : (

That's two tries, dammit, so I'm going to add rusty to dynamic too, especially as my simple mantra's been "stolen" by nhzoso!

Adequate.

I should really aspire to more than adequacy. Well, I do, but I tend to always end up playing music that's more difficult than I can physically manage, so my level of adequacy goes up but I never achieve excellence!

My playing style has been variously described as 'Freudian' and 'incontinent'. I'm still trying to work out if this is a good thing...

I wanted that one too! I'm not even happy with "spirited" ... I feel more comfy with "try-hard" :)

I can but aspire towards being an incontinent drummer ... maybe in 30 years ...

I had a guitarist recently tell me I was like a robot with feelings. I appreciated that.

I was going to say "solid" as well. I've also been called a machine. I've never been accused of having feelings, though :-P

Involved or musical (odd how that one hasn't yet shown up) were my first instincts, but I think Dimensional is the best single word for me.
