that's certainly not my 'choice'.... it just fits the criteria I laid out for myself.

As I was pondering this I realized it's not often an entire song in which the drums win me over but far more likely just a short passage, doesn't even have to be a solo. Like Steve Gadd in "50 Ways To Live your Lover" and "Check E's In Love" in which the passage I adore is just a very few short notes.

I think Jeff Pocaro's ENTIRE performance on Toto's "Rosanna" is fantastic... but again, that wouldn't be my choice.

I am in total AWE with the speed of whoever that guy is that played "Through The Fire and Flames" with Dragonforce BUT... it's simply the speed that amazes me... what he actually does is VERY easy to figure out.

Ramgator asked a very hard question... starting to feel like you... no matter how long I think about it I don't think I can come up with an answer.

  James and SST. You can pick ONLY one!

sstrams69September 13, 2022 12:23PM

JamesJM65September 13, 2022 01:32PM

  And Steve, question for you....

JamesJM36September 13, 2022 01:38PM

  Its kind of all about emotion for me..

sstrams48September 13, 2022 02:19PM

sstrams36September 13, 2022 02:09PM

JamesJM36September 13, 2022 02:29PM

sstrams34September 13, 2022 02:51PM

JamesJM72September 13, 2022 03:19PM

sstrams52September 13, 2022 03:29PM

Ramgator41September 13, 2022 02:00PM
