The Backbone of a musical group or band. Drummers keep the tempo of a group because in most other cases guitarists simply cannot. Although the drums do attract many girls, and are often described as being a chick magnet
, they also play an important role in a band. Drums are an instrument that looks easy to play, but to ACTUALLY play them properly takes lots of practice. Saying this... drums are the ONLY instrument you can have fun with even before you know what you’re doing.
The stupidest thing I have ever heard from a guitarist was "at least you don’t have to tune your instrument" which is FALSE. In fact, we have 10x more tuning then guitarists do. Each drum head has to be tuned separately, top and bottom. Not only this, but cymbals must also be tightened to get the sound you want, whether you want them to sound like a CRASH sound or a crash with a long decay.
