Theyre like "you can dance to that". who the hell would ever dance to blistering singlestrokes. when basketball players have a shootout, do you see everyone saying "yeah but thias guy sucks i bet he cant pass or guard". a shootout isnt a game of basketball. a wfd contest isnt a song. or a performance. practicing for a wfd contest does wonders for pedal and stick control. most of the wfd's best competitors pratcticed slow to get where they are. theres alot more to it for me than just speed. its really about becoming one with the stick or pedal,understanding the way it moves and the way you control it. I'v sat there for hours just playig slow single strokes and paying attention to the way the pedal reacts to my foot. or the stick reats to my hand. but at the end of the day. its a contest. to see how ast you can play single strokes. simpe as that. ever flaming wfd flamer has flamed for the same flaming reason. they dnt understand one thing. ITS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE MUSIC
I think alot of drummers take issue with the idea of testing their skill too because they're afraid of how they'll measure up; Everyone wants to talk about how long their cock is untill someone busts out a ruler

Whatever floats your boat.
A smokin groove makes me laugh because it's so ....there are so many words that can describe it.
It's infectious. It touches a place inside all of us (except for steve martin in "The Jerk"...he tried)
Go to a TOP concert and if you don't feel that, maybe something is missing in your arsenal.
David and TOP anyone?Groove anyone?
