First off, I hate the term "money beat". A derogatory term used by those wishing to belittle the status of the most used beat in popular music. Some players regard it as a first lesson that's quickly moved on from, others as a blank canvas that allows the painting of unlimited colours. I believe this simple beat is difficult to play with passion & performance. Many drummers who can display uber chops fail to master this stalwart of the popular music drummers craft. I know this will divide the forum, that's why I've posted this. Let's get it on!
