RE: Drummers and time.
As a bassist, time is essential in my playing. Nobody wants me pushing or pulling the music on the average gig. I have had very little issue with drummers of over the years in regards to keeping good time. Guitarist...well they're another thing all together.

When I have recorded, I used a click track. I have used a metronome since day one when practicing. My teacher was a stickler for using one to keep me honest and it payed off.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

I cried my eyes out when Pocaro died. I was totally shattered.

For those not in the know, Jeff was the drummer in Toto who played the Rosana groove. A total master. His brother, the bass player, recently died from illness. Sad

Great advice from your teacher. Time is everything to me. If the drummer is wayward it is hard to keep it together. Same story if the percussionist constantly switches instruments rather than settling into the groove. Just play the congas motherfucker! Smile

Using a metronome and knowing my scales were the best things I ever learned. A lot of new players don't want to put in time on the basics but you have to walk before you run.

A wayward drummer is a disaster. Smile
