    Ed Lee, I think you missed the point. In a church choir/band/singer situation its different. IF/when the drummer gets off beat, there are a whole lot of people that get confused (especially the singer ROFL). They were rehearsing the "meat" of the song and the guy said it (the meat) wasn't well done (you know, like they ask you in a restaurant how you want it cooked?) so they were going to practice (cook) it more so it would be" well done". Not nearly so funny when it has to be explained.

    The singer was already confused... It's the job description.


    How do you know there's a soprano on your front porch?

    She can't find the key, and she doesn't know when to come in.ROFL

    When a drummer messes up, everyone else is messed up. People ... I go to church also and have played in many. Now think of it ... the organist / pianist played for many a choir WITHOUT DRUMS. I never asked for or wanted a drum accompaniment!

    "Confuse the organist" ... drummers confuse everybody! Sorry nephew! Since I'm a march "addict" I'll concede that they do a lot to sustain order ... but few marchers can tell me what step the down beat is and if a drummer misses it ... you've a rag tag bunch on parade.

    I've got loads from conductors (some said by myself in the past) ...

    'Not too quick, accel gradually, you don't want to climax too soon!' ;-)

    'The bass part needs to be a little fuller, give her (the cornet player) something to sit on!' :oops:

    'Get your runs sorted out, they're terrible' :-P

    etc etc

    actually as a trumpet player -- I think you can easily take that song up an octave (or two), and do some triple tonguing on the eigth notes ---- that should really help the percussionist get some perspective ---- LOL.

    I am on a comeback, starting to play in church, but so far they only give me solos during the offering -- must be I can't keep a beat, and I add too many grace notes -- or the drummer couldn't keep up with me --- LOL
