    Practicing

    How should a beginner drummer practice knowing where they are in the tune? I mean; if you take eg honky tonk women you play the first drumbeat over and over for a long time.

    How did the understanding of another instrument affect your drumming?

    An ability to think melodically is the first that comes to mind. With that, come's a much more sympathetic approach to group composition and simply a more whole understanding of music. I'd love to hear others' experiences.
