When you listen to modern music, do you find that the drummer's part is always a little basic, and never gets a chance to play many chops etc. It seems the most famous songs are basically simple 4/4. Let's talk!
Amen to that, this guy knows whats up.Rob the Drummer":7tq43nrg said:It takes a good deal of talent to do simple stuff properly! Don't think it's no talent because it's a simple meter. Good players have a way of utilizing thier chops without it being over-bearing. Just listen to Steve Gadd or Josh Freese. They groove and also have excellent chops!
Don't forget, companies are trying to sell this stuff to the average person. The average person wants to be able to groove. Over-playing doesn't groove. That's why if you want the solo stuff, you gotta look in a different market.
Also did you ever notice that drummers get solos at concerts?
