Someone who can kick ass behind a drum set and stir up excitement in an audience. A drummer can rock you or soothe you, depending on the song. A gentle song needs a drummer that can create a happy flow. Often real drummers make people want to jump up and dance. Drummers play a full set of rock drums: at least one snare, at least 2 tom toms and one or 2 floor toms, 3 or more cymbals, plus a high-hat and a bass drum. More of any can be added any time. Chimes, gongs, orchestral bells and cowbells have also seen some pretty hard-hitting from drummers. There are some drummers that could be called drummers that play other styles of music than rap and rock, but they tend to be rare. Like, is Charlie Watts really a drummer when he plays jazz – give me a break.
Altho drummers don't always practice, they remain true to a genuine spirit of hard-hitting cooperation with other members of their bands, driving them ahead. They are also influenced by the music coming from other instruments and incorporate it into the overall experience, hence helping to shape the music. This is why other members of the band should always play well, since they are influencing the drummer.
Drummers have the Power of Rock 'n' Roll at their command.
We went to see Trail of Death (or some new band in town) and the drummer kicked ass!
