Lots of drummer's try to copy other drummers styles.
When you really need to express your own feelings and co-ordinate with the rest of the band.
Stay with the groove and at the same time keep up with your own self of being "THE DRUMMER".
Keeping up with the band and at the same time being yourself.
Being with a band is not like being tied to an umbilical cord.
I've played with all sorts of bands, some liked my style while others didn't.
But in the end I compromised to play their needs.
And then I moved on to be myself.
What I'm trying to say is to be yourself and keep on drumming your own way.
This forum is not a club of drummers. It's about learning from one another and respecting everyone.
May the creator be with us all.
