Maybe you have to read inside the replies. Because drummers need to be masters of Rhythm, Harmony and Melody.I'm astounded that in 18 replies no one has typed the word "Rhythm".... not once.
Music at it's most basic is comprised of three things... Melody, Harmony and Rhythm. And in any given ensemble, the drummer is literally the point man when it comes to essential element.... rhythm.
So what do we do besides hit wooden tubs.... We Are Masters of Rhythm. We are the one the other musicians turn to for the last word in "where's the rhythm?", "what's the rhythm?", "how is the rhythm supposed to feel?"
Every instrument utilizes all three elements, of course.
But at their core - violinists, singers, wind players are all about melody
Pianists, guitarists - harmony
But drummers, it is all about rhythm.
Being Masters of Rhythm.
