Modesty would be a start. The answer to your friend’s question is out there for him to hear with his ears in the tons of music created over the decades and played by some of the greatest drummers ever. He really needs to expand his world of influence by listening to more than just Scandinavian pop music. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. And the more I think about this, the more baffled I am at your friend’s total lack of self awareness. Anyone with access to the internet has insane amounts of material with which to better ones self. If your friend joins the forum he will be welcomed and will have the full encyclopedic knowledge that this group has available to him. But please, have him leave the attitude at home. After all, I KNOW that I suck.Hey all thank you for your constructive feedback. I will pass this feedback to
Understood - it was only sarcasm!
I have studied your replies and wish to thank you for your constructive feedback. I guess that one has to know his/her limitations before can learn and progress anything and here we are talking about modesty. I talk with my friend and ask him to join the forum himself. That could be his first step in learning to play.
