Came across this video a while back and it was an interesting take to hear.
I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. As drummers it seems we have a tendency to get bogged down with practicing “drum stuff” when we really should just be listening to the music we want to play and working to emulate it closely.
Something that Marcus Gilmore said in a modern drummer interview comes to mind:
“There are certain tools you can use to get to the music, but often people get caught up in the tools and they don’t get to the actual music”
What are y’all’s thoughts on this opinion?
