I know most drummers think alike, so how many of you drum?

Drumming is easy to be efficient at, even harder to be stand-out at, and given living situations in current trends, even harder to practice at nowadays… I’m fortunate to have parents that braved through the tough years of my learning curve, and be a tenured drummer in my current music scene…it has been one of the most soul searching and self-revealing ventures I’ve ever submerged myself into.

think alike in what way? i really like playing the drums. i find it weird how it comes very naturally, dissolving into rhythm and all. i’ll confess, i think it’s why i’m 60% more into songs, because of their beats and whatnot. lyrics are great! but if its got a corresponding rhythm to me, i’ll love it even more. i also listen to a lot of instrumentals.

also, i’ve noticed that i have a more broad music taste than my sisters. as well as the correlation with drummers being dancers. have you guys noticed the same thing? it could be the people i’m around, but the drummers i know, dance well. i’m theorizing it has something to do with having rhythm.

@ Kim, I once met a conducter who knew my friend played cello, that I was a drummer, and that our other friend was a singer before either of said as much as word to him…I shit you not…One of the coolest things that ever happened to me. His justification to knowing this about me was that I walked in contrived steps.

I’m also a very good dancer, and I think that stems from the ability to syncopate to music easily and have a greater visual effect.

I would bet those who are great dancers could be great drummers to, with very little effort. It’s understanding correlations in other instruments and musical parts.

I agree with the notion of liking beats more than lyrics, and this is why I’m a fan of select electronic music, but ultimately love “live drums.”

As for musical taste, you are only as good of a drummer, as how long many hours you’ve played/considered the drums, and how large your record collection is.”

David Bowie once said, ” Good Band, Good Drummer. Great Band, Great Drummer.” That ’bout wraps it up.

oh wow, so he correctly presumed you all were some sort of musician, and even pinpointed it down to the type. yeah, that’s pretty awesome. he must have been studying something for a really long time to infer you’re a drummer, just by your gait. that’s really interesting. haha who was he?!?!?!

and yes, i think any who’s got some sort of built in metronome can acquire skill with musical instruments. if you have that, it makes manipulating music all the easier, and funner. ;)

a really long time ago, i’ve come across this “Classical Drumming” video. just the name itself made me laugh endlessly! haha like what? classical drumming?? you have you check it out. the two just doesn’t fit. –http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CWki-Jac8H0

@Kim, I watched that vid for about forty five seconds, and yeah, rock drumming and classical music doesn’t work together, I’m suprised the other instrumentalist weren’t thrown off..

its all about the timing ,yes if the drummer has great timing, the music will sound great, but the rest of the bandmates have to have great timing too, or the music will sound sloppy.
