While I won't argue your statement as this IS a thread entitled "Your Unpopular Opinions" after all, so all statements are correct, at least for the one making them. BUT (you knew there had to be one right?) I will at offer that even someone who has "it" benefits greatly from a little encouragement as they are improving even more in the craft through their practice and books.You either have it or you don't.
"it" is obvious without all the practice and the books.
Complimenting or praising mediocrity doesn't do anyone any favors.
I once did a three hour rock cover gig with just snare, kick, and an omni ride. It floated. Actually, I think it was pretty darn good. (Full disclosure: I did have a double pedal, as well.)Thats a good thing. Try a gig with no hihat. Just pretend its broken and you cant get it fixed until after the gig.
