Yeah, I know..its a general statement but is pretty accurate.. I was listening to one of my favorite drummers, Billy Kreutzman play (listen to him on the song called Jack Straw). https://archive.org/details/gd72-01-02.sbd.eD.8709.sbeok.shnf and his playing is simply phenomenal. Tight, jazz, and solid. The guy really just makes it all sound so easy. It got me to thinking that I've played with very few drummers like that. 90% of the ones Ive played with are the kinds of guys who show up to a gig or jam session with a huge kit, and whenever I see that happening I get a sense of dread. It never fails that the tempos are all over the place, changes are missed, etc OTH when the opposite happens, like a drummer showing up with nothing more than a 4 piece or 5 piece kit, everything is pretty much awesome Why do so many drummers have such a hard time playing drums well? and before someone says "gui****s and bassists have the same problem", I don't think thats true. You can be a mediocre stringed instrument player and still sound good as long as you know what your limitations are.
