Hi, I'm part of a band and we're currently writing songs. I would like to have better communication with the drummer. I have a feeling that a better understanding of rhythm would help me with this, but I think I should be able to research this myself. However if you have a good place to start or any advice it would be appreciated. I don't really know how to ask this, but what I think I'd like to do is understand what drummers do a bit better. Say if I had an idea and they came up with a beat for it, instead of me saying something like ''That's really cool. Could you play that faster, but, like, slower?'' I'd have some idea what to say. Also is there set drumbeats and stuff that things are based on? I hope this make sense. Thanks.
