What style do you prefer? I LOVE Jazz, and Blues. But I'd say that my favourite is the blues. I really enjoy Jimi Hendrix and Zeppelin rock too.

I like the Zeppelin a lot, but as far as my favorite style I would have to go with Rock.

yea, rock for me too. But im thinking of getting into Drum 'n Bass! Proper tight, precision beats at insane speeds for long periods of time! Gets your stamina up and improves your timing, and its pretty fun and action packed.

I must say my biggest influence is Neil Peart. I'm sure alot of people are with me on that one. I can't remember the drummers name from Dream Theater, but the drumming on Pull me Under is just amazing. I play anything that comes to mind, usually my own stuff. It's nice to play along with the CD, but with these infringment suits all the time, I'm scared my nosey neighbor is gonna call on me everytime I shake her windows with some good old fashion Hot for Teacher

This is an interesting thread, so I'll tag on to it.

I hear so many musical styles seem to mesh together these days, and I think that's very cool.  My favorite music to PLAY would be TOWER OF POWER style tunes.  That style seems to "mesh" jazz, blues, soul and funk in a really great groove for drummers to play.  That "FUNK GROOVE" just does it for me......sometimes it's almost like the second greatest feeling in the world!

As far as music to "LISTEN TO".......I really enjoy listening to all sorts of music.  It keeps my ears and mind open for new ideas and for things I need to work on.

I will and have played most styles of music, but prefer to play Progressive Rock

And I will also listen to most music, My CD Collection is so varied that no matter who might break into my van to steal CD's they would find something they liked!  Grin

But as with playing, Progressive Rock usually wins in the listening department also.  Cool

Hi,

      I've played a few things.  Right now I have a band that is playing blues/rock with impovisation similar to live "Cream"  and heading towards a  "Trio of Doom"  kind of thing.  For me it's important to be able to be creative and improvise.

      Jazz is fun and there is a lot of impovisation, but you have to hold back a lot, so you're limited to how much you can play unless you're playing free jazz or fusion like "Lifetime".

      Metal is fun but after awhile it gets pretty repetitious with no improvisation at all.  Even the poor guitar player is stuck playing the same solos night after night.

      Rock, soul, and even country and western are fun to play.  But, I need to push myself and my band to the  limits each time we play and see where we can take the music.  It's  exhilarating to be out there not knowing what's coming ahead in the music or what you're going to play next as you're pushing the envelope in your playing.

Great Post Don, I agree with you.  I am not a big country fan I do play those beats from time to time to broaden my scope a bit.  I love Jaz and Rock.  Blues is fun but I am not ready to take that up yet, that requires more skill then I have right now as Jazz does.

 I really enjoy classical music. I know it seems strange, but guys were writing pieces for whole orchestras 100's of years ago that really rocked! For some of them it was their life's work, and it made them feel closer to God. You can truly hear the composer's soul thrown open as you listen. I know, there aren't a lot of blast beats or hot rudiments or blazing double bass, but talk about writing something meaningful that stood the test of time..

I am starting to like soft Spanish acoustic guitar music that I can play my bongo cajon too.

I like Afro-Cuban style music and the group Santana!

Santana is great to drum too!  Smiley

I guess after reading all the entries in this thread, I'll have to claim Modern/progressive jazz/rock.  Basically if it's a challenge to the drummer, its worth listening to and trying to learn how to play.
