Finding a Great Drummer?

Why is it so hard to find a great drummer. Sure I can find people who can play drums. But they don't understand how to play the song and play simple and in the pocket.

What up?

Because drumming is harder than not drumming.

Because drummers are usually, dumb, smoke pot a lot, or are incredibly lazy.

Ergo, they usually die at a young age due to natural selection.

At least in my experience, the drums are something that are much more tedious to practice at when first starting out than the guitar is.

Also, ladies are impressed by pretty chord voicings and melodies, not rhythms. Hence, more people play guitar.

Rhythm is very underrated.

Drummers are a bitch to find, my band was together for almost 2 years and we never found a drummer. Every drummer that ever tried out wouldn't take us seriously, and we ended up playing shows without a drummer and became the laughing stock of the Fort Wayne hardcore music scene

in my experience, bass players - aside from me - tend to make pretty solid drummers

Because truly great drummers usually have the self-respect to not play in a band with amateurish condescending jagoffs.

I live with a great drummer, my brother, he's amazing.

He can sing too, and I can do synth and guitar...I'm pretty much set.

Daaaamn that's cold.

The worst is when the drummer is the douchebag of the band.
