For years, I've been pushing back against the idea that the only thing differentiating great drummers from mediocre ones is chops. But it's not even just chops and groove. Musical pros know - there's a whole suite of "soft" skills that influences who they call for the gig and who they don't. From learning songs quickly, to keeping the "1" even when the beat shifts, it's not enough to have chops when people are trusting you to play their songs in front of an audience.
