Awesome drum skills

Rum, beer, women, movies, nice websites, gaming, etc., without interrupting the flow of martial threads.

Wow, the last one was actually more about music than "just percussion." Very smooth, and awesome skill. 8-)

Because instead of just playing really fast, he's making sweet groovy love to his kit.

Without groove, you got NOTHING.

My favorite drummer. Danny Carey from Tool. Watching him live is hypnotizing.

hey, if we're gonna go tabla and conga and bongo, I think we may as well make this simply about rhythm! :D

you know, back in my dope smokin' days, i had this idea of a universal groove. drummers, musicians, etc. tap into this when they get into that zone where the song/rhythm/groove just sort of effortlessly flows through them as they're playing. it's an awesome feeling if you've ever experienced it.

While we're at it we should give a shout out to Hal Blaine for most pervasive session drummer.

One of my favorite drummers as well.

But for me the pinnacle of metal drumming is Tomas Haake's playing.



Let's see if you polyrhythm nuts can figure it out 8-)
