My band just lost our drummer and he was quite good.We have played together for five years and we were pretty tight. He new my style of playing and I knew his. We have a new drummer but he is just starting out. How do I approach playing with a new drummer who is playing for about year now.I take my playing seriously that is how I improved over these years. Studying my instrument, listenning to the masters, watching live bands play but he just does not seem interested in all of those things. He is not that passionate about playing as the other was or else he will never improve without the passion. Will playing with a beginner actually hamper my playing?.
