I give them equal value..
I prefer the chaotic arena of speed drumming, progressive metal, art metal, improv
jazz, big band... One could argue that Buddy Rich was an over player who did lots
Sometimes the groove is the absence of groove or the odd time signature contrasting
with everyone else. The way it is presented is what I believe this is key. I find
that there are an abundance of musicians who rely on the drummer to be the only
one to keep time; and they are the same who tend to always complain about overplaying
and too many fills. A prime example of a quality musician who keeps the pulse
song in mind and allows the other players the freedom to explore. Any guitarist, bassist,
drummer, keys, singer should be able to dance around the pulse
of the song without
impacting the other players.
I’ve been obsessed with Guthrie Govan’s Erotic Cake album lately… the whole album
is loaded with taste…
