I've been on TB for almost half a year now and I've noticed this topic doesn't get that much coverage. That surprises me because in my life as a performer, rushing and/or dragging is a major issue that rears its ugly head all too often. So I figured it's time to start a fresh thread to discuss and compare strategies. How do you avoid being the culprit? How do you deal with it when another player would inadvertently savage the tempo? Are there some drummers that just can't be held back (/ up)?
