Drum Tips - Solid, Simple Drumming

K.I.S.S. means:
  1. Keep It Simple Stupid; or
  2. Keep It Stupidly Simple; or
  3. Keep It Solidly Simple (my personal favorite)
Don't play above your ability.

Play simple and solid and folks will generally think you are a great drummer. The critics might say that you "can't play anything complicated" but if you never try to play the complicated stuff during a gig, nobody will know that you cannot play the complicated stuff.

Abraham Lincoln is credited with saying "Better to be silent and thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt" Translated to drums I believe this means – It's better to play really solid on something simple than to play poorly because you are trying to be too fancy.
