Just looking for opinions on a topic I've thought about and discussed with other local musicians. For example, I learned to play the drums first. Having the rhythm from that and the understanding of what the drummer is doing, does that give one an advantage? My brother plays the drums in our band and we both grew up learning to play with gospel music so he and I may just have a similar style and familiarity with each other. I'm not saying it can't be something that is learned, but obviously there are some folks out there that just don't have "soul" or a good sense of rhythm. We've all seen them on youtube or at shows. They'll play every lick exactly right note-wise but there's something missing. It's just not quite right. Honestly, I run into more guitarists like that then what I thought I would. So, in your opinion, what sort of background (drums/percussion, guitar, piano, or maybe starting fresh with no prior experience, or something else) gives a person an advantage and why do you think so? Certainly not trying to start a heated debate but just curious as to the opinion of my fellow Tb'ers.
