Wow.. How do you handle calusses?

Interesting thread. I came across it and am amazed it's still going after 5 years..

I think that any good drummer would learn to use rimshots as well as cross-sticking or any other tool to make his "vocabulary" larger. There are times when nothing will do the job as well as a solid rimshot, other times you may just need subtlety barrely touch the drum/cymbal/whatever.

Drums are great for driving music.. it's hard for anyone to go anywhere if the drummer is just coasting.
