Does arm length matter when it comes to a drummers style? I have 6'9" wing span I tend to like to spread my kit out give each drum and cymbal space, and go for maximum stereo effect, with lots of coordinated independence. I also think my wrists are are weak(relatively) so I avoid too much time keeping or choppy fills. I know many drummers tend to crowd their drums together and overlap cymbals and play fast with lots of snare. I think that suits some drummers better than myself.
