Ok, I'll bite. Your friend spends way too much time on self-expression, and not nearly enough time copying other drummers, or learning fundamental styles of music. Instead, he's got a few "beats"/"patterns"/"combinations", and he's throwing them at a song, hoping they'll stick. Because he doesn't understand and hasn't copied how a professional drummer usually approaches songs, beats, and fills, his ideas are out of place, the tempo fluctuates, and variations are performed randomly and without purpose. This video could be just a very strange, personal interpretation of this one song, but I bet he struggles with other songs, too.My friend needs critical guidance.
Please, can you help and indicate what factors in his playing should be concentrated, i.e. what skills could be improved ? I attach here a drum video and hope that you will give constructive feedback!
Don't worry. There isn't.Perhaps there is consensus among the other players that he is the best.
Nope. There's *some* technique going on there, but it's at the amateur/hobbyist level, at best.maybe my friend has some secret techniques that I cannot recognize.
This is the question someone asks, right before they quit.If not, how much work is needed to be the best?
