If by some chance that you love music then you must have a particular instrument that you are passionate about, right? This topic here is for those people who love playing the drums and thus calling themselves the drummers. Lately, and sometimes it happens a few times, which people brush off the drummers when they play as a band. People’s eyes will always stare at the lead singer, the cool guitarist, the smooth pianist and the savvy bass player but what about the drummer? Usually, the drummer’s position is at the back of his band members, sometimes hiding in the shadows and my opinion the most overlooked player in the band.
There are some people who think that the drummers aren’t cool, and thus making the instrument; drums, not appealing. Maybe because the other players are bathed in the spotlight while the drummer is just hidden at the corner or the back? Whatever the reasons is it seemed unfair to think that drummers, and the instrument itself, aren’t great to be appreciated for it.

● Drums and Drummers are the foundations in the band. They are the pillar of confidence and the members of the band rely on that confidence to create good music.
