Almost anytime you listen to music, you’re bound to hear the beat; the beat that you can’t help tapping your foot too. This beat is provided by the drummer in almost any band. The drummer is the band member that sets the beat for the rest of the band and gives each song its to tapping allure. Other band members rely on the drummer to provide a consistent strong beat to follow. Without it…well, without a drummer’s beat, a song just wouldn’t sound right at all!
Drummers are a unique bunch of people—talented, gifted, dedicated, and passionate. Anyone who has the pleasure of knowing a drummer also knows that drummers are also quite unique individuals and even a little whacky at times. If you’re a drummer yourself, chances are you’re always looking for ways to express yourself.
