Default Nate Smith

I really like Nate Smith's style. I'm listening to his work with the Dave Holland Sextet/Quartet. Fast, powerful and perfect timing.

Any other fans out there?

I am not sure why this thread about Nate Smith never got a reply, but everyone who likes to have a lesson on how to lay down a groove on just kick, snare and hihat can take a look here..

And for sure check out all of his other work too..

Nate is new to me. All I can say is Holy Crap man.

My first impression is he's like Steve Jordan on steroids.

Bad to the bone.

Thanks ctdrummer

Here's another:

You want to see some really great 16ths on the hi hat, holy crap man.

I just started following this guy about a month or 2 ago and I'm hooked. He reminds me a lot of Stephen Ferrone, both have great pockets and a lot of power. He's definitely best known for his solid grooves, but unlike a lot of other groove oriented drummers this guy also has crazy good chops as well and can play some awesome solos. There's a video out there of him dropping his stick during a solo and playing the most amazing 1 handed solo I've ever seen. He's absolutely under the radar and underrated in the drum community. More people need to be talking about this dude!

Oh for sure, if you can crank 16ths like that, you can surely unleash some fury around the kit...I bet his chops are terrifying. Good comparison too

This guy is the bomb. Check out his neat little grace note trick, just twisting the stick.
