Yes this is a retort to the other thread but serious question. Snobby? Condescending, upper class?

Did Buddy look down on country and rock music because he thought he was better than it?

Is country and rock the lower class genre in the music industry?

Alls I knows is I struggles to plays it … a very tough transition for a long time groover and rocker.
I‘d love to call myself a Jazz drummer.
I‘ve yet to earn that.

Do you get jazz hands from playing jazz drums?

How can a drum style be snobby? It’s just a vocabulary and knowing how a tune works.

Jazz drummers are typically more studied because the vocabulary is so large it requires a lot of learning and time and technique.

Each drummer has their own personality but most drummers I know are quite humble. Take Dan Weiss and Ari Hoenig who are insanely amazing but are definitely not snobby. At all.

This is all pertaining to real jazz drummers. Not instagram personalities/brands that have never been on a jazz record.
