        I respect the **************** out of Minnemann's ability, but I've always found his stuff dull. The man contributed to making Guthrie Govan boring, for ****************'s sake.

          Govan might get boring. His leads mostly knock me out though. I wouldn't necessarily blame the drummer though. Post some examplia.

            Speaking of boring, in my quest for "the music" I've paid attention to local cover bands - some pros, even the odd hotties but mostly regular peeps that can moonlight at pop music. You get all kinds of approximations of radio fare new and old and the one thing that sticks about the best players is consistency. It's a rare breed but the few I've been able to observe have gone for decades on the same sets. Oh they keep up with the times too but they find the good groove on a tune and don't screw with it- seems like ever. lol

            Anyway, most can deal with most pop tunes. They're easy to play. Unless you have to go 40 yrs with 'em.

              100% agreed. A good song is a good song, no matter when it was written! some tunes just have a built in groove, and if you find it, its a great thing. Sweet Home Alabama, played right, is a killer groove, imho.

              I think its DiDubs sig that says good playing hides a crappy set, but a good set wont hide crappy playing. Too true.

                Thought I'd throw that in. It's kinda the basis of the way I've been practicing lately. In short, I figure the best way to achieve that kind of discipline is to make the basics automatic and mindless as possible. Towards that end I've gone sub-rudimental to the actual physical consistency and muscle movement required of drumming. It's kind of a self fulfilling trek to where you can eventually appreciate and enjoy the magic of competence.



                That said, I think the musical intellect requires complexity as well. You gotta make things happen or once you know and understand your rhythmic space it's too easy to make a routine of your playing and stop growing - Point A to point B to C to D and back to A again and again. Complexity and "fanciness" may be an effect of that process but it's more about discovery and the sensations of new rhythms. I for one like it there. Wanna get there.

                  This is why I'm enjoying the weekly Jazz gig. Doesn't pay **************** (I end up spending more on drinks than I get paid!), but the experience is just incredible! I'm finding that the more I learn, the more that I can see what I have YET to learn. It's especially gratifying when I see folks in the club enjoying the music. That's the icing on the cake for me!


                  Good playing can hide a crappy drumset, but even the best drumset can't hide crappy playing.

                    I've never been studious but drumming sure lays it out for you. I like to say, "Ignorance is infinite". haha
