So I'm not sure if this is common or not but the preferred music I listen to in no way reflects my playing style. My absolute favorite band is rush, so you all know how crazy busy neil's drumming is and that while it fits perfectly for their music he doesn't always play syncopated or relaxes into a groove for long before he changes up what he's doing. I also love primus, pantera, tool, and other drummers with a very busy style. However when I go to play, either with a pre recorded track or original material with other musicians I prefer to keep it simple and have no problem just sitting in the groove, usually syncopated with the bass. I keep my fills from becoming overly busy and work more on patterns that compliment the overall pattern of the song instead of trying to get to flashy. It's just something I've noticed about myself. Anybody else do the same?
