With respect to playing, yes, the advice-giver needs to have a higher level of experience than I do. With respect to other aspects of drumming, their playing level is not as important as their level of real-world experience. So, no matter how incredible a drummer may be from a technical standpoint, if they haven't been on the road before, or in the studio, or had any involvement with a drum company, I would take any advice regarding those topics with a grain of salt.But, in reality, when taking any drumming advice, is the level of playing from the person who gives the advice for yourself important or not..?
I do listen, as other drummers may have a different experience than mine. But I still weigh such advice based on the giver's experience, and am very selective about what is useful to me.Another way to ask the same question could be..:
Are you taking all the drumming advice you can get, regardless from who, or are you very selective..?
