All I know is that I've been trying to play White Washed perfectly for so long now that it's starting to really annoy me.

I haven't had one perfect run yet, its by far the hardest song I've tried to learn to play. I've come close, but not quite. Anyway, Matt is an amazing drummer and a good person who is confident in his faith too.

I've got a couple of ABR CD's. Matt's a great drummer. I don't think I'll ever be able to play most of their music.

its all in the dotted quarter note lol...for the beginning at least. His drumming is very challenging and hard to recreate.

Yeah. It wouldn't be so hard for me except I'm new to the double bass pedal as I only got my first one a couple months ago. My left foot feels retarded when I try to go fast. Which could possibly be partially because the pedal I bought is a kinda shitty one that I just wanted to learn a bit on. Eventually I'll hope to get a speed cobra or something like that and we'll see how big of a difference that makes.

Yeah totally gocha....once i got my DW 3000 double bass pedal everything felt a lot easier in a way. Practice is key though.

I love his drumming it stands out in a sea of metal drummers.

I've been trying to learn "Provision" for a while and wow are his drum tracks ever complicated! I'm learning 7/8 as I go and so far it's been a good challenge song for me, something that I can work towards.

I'm not so sure I like his choice of disregarding his ride bell for a custom Z bell. It sounds too light for my taste and doesn't have the impact I like hearing from a bell.

Kid is from my town, I've seen him around the local drum store Drum's Etc (he teaches there). Every time I see his VF, etc ads I can't believe it! Great drummer.

Oh man there's soooo much to say about Greiner...his composing is just phenomenal as well as his personality. Well that goes for all the guys of ABR, probably the most humble guys I've ever met.
