practice to a click/metronome. There is nothing more disappointing than a drummer that has amazing chops but can't play in time, rushes fills, and constantly ebbs and flows...

I have found that most drummers say "Oh yeah, I can play to click" even when they've never done it. Then, they come into a studio/live session and are all over the place!

Love the click. Play to the click. Be comfortable with it...Eventually you might not need it, but if you CAN'T play with one, I'd rather call someone else...

Also, I love drummers that are versatile and have more than just drumsticks in their bags. Shakers, brushes, other texture creating devices can take a session or live event to a higher level...So listening to drummers that do that well will help creativity...

that's all for now!
