The biggest thing that helped me was simply taking private lessons with a really good teacher.

Curious...how did she do that?
It was pretty simple really. She liked to dance! She was also an artist with some experience as a bass player before we met. I never heard her play. At that time in my life I was still focused on chops over feel. I think she sensed that while she thought I could play that from a listener’s perspective I was not focusing enough on the main point of being a drummer in a band. It takes a conscious effort and discipline to get people to move to your beat. I started realizing how playing behind, on or ahead of the beat affects the music.
