Ability to play on any instrument (guitar, drums, brass, etc.). Used for guitar and drums because of the chopping motion made by the hand, and used for wind instruments because chops is also slang for one's mouth.
On drums: He played the ditty so fast. . . he has amazing chops.
On guitar: Did you hear that solo? He's got wicked chops!
On brass: You have to have some chops to hit a double G.
