The big one that came to mind immediately was Rainbow's "Stargazer" by the amazing Cozy Powell.
I consider drone metal to be progressive...

Good call. One of the several reasons why I love that song.

Also ... :

VdGG - "Arrow" (come on ... that is some tight semi-professional drumming)
Mahavishnu Orchestra with John McLaughlin - "Vital Transformations"

... Ermm ... I might think of more.

Yeah, that's a righteous example.

A slightly more modern example I like is the intro to Judas Priest's title song from Painkiller. I'm not exactly a JP "fan," but they have some great songs, like "Desert Plains" and "Hellion/Electric Eye."

I still don't understand how that changes his level of professionalism. 

Does that mean Ringo Star is barely professional because so many drummers posses better technical skill? 

Guy does a great job on Arrow, and in VdGG in general. He's a professional.

It doesn't. There were guys before Guy who could chop more proficiently than Guy. He can do better. He still has more room. Just because you have a few classy drum fills up your sleeve, that doesn't automatically make you a pro.

Give me one performance where Ringo chopped proficiently.

On "Arrow", "Killer", ... yes, but most of the time it sounds to me as if he is just there for rhythm back-up.

There's more to a drummer than playing sophisticated fills. Fills don't make a "professional" drummer. That's what you're saying in statement 1 correct? Good, i agree. 

Statement 2: Strawberry Fields Forever is a fantastic Ringo song. Same with Good Morning Good Morning. 

Statement 3. guy is a great drummer, and isn't limited to those songs. Honestly i think most of his performances are adequate and are both interesting and stable. Even so, even if we has just a metronome for VdGG's time signatures - he's still a professional. Session musicians are paid to do the same, and it's still his job and performs his role well.

OK. Give me an example.

1) What do you mean by "professional" in quotes?
2) First, you say "Fills don't make a 'professional' drummer", then you agree. I'm confused.

 QUOTE=Horizons Statement 2: Strawberry Fields Forever is a fantastic Ringo song. Same with Good Morning Good Morning. /QUOTE

Fantastic songs, yes, but on the strengths of composition. I don't know what Ringo has to do with it, though.

OK. What works do you think demonstrate him at his best?

I have nothing against the metronome.

I agreed because you said the same thing. I still am trying to avoid your usage of professional. Only thing we disagree on it seems is you think a drummer's job is to w**k off during complicated fills. 






An example of an excellent drummer, doing an excellent percussion performance without using complicated fills. 

Edit: w**k is censored? Isn't there an age limit anyway?

LOL

Never mind about that one. It sounds like we'll fall into a rabbit-hole if we go further down this path.

I thought there was only one legit usage of the word (the one that ostensibly the two of us agreed on beforehand). If you can't play proficiently, you are not at the pro level, right?

I said nothing of the kind, nor did I imply it. If you are able to come up with more ideas on spot for the same song, isn't that something that only a pro can do?

OK ... what's so professional about this performance

I'm going to respond with another question.

What's isn't professional about it?

^ It just sounds like something a beginner drummer could play. Nothing pro about that.

Pertaining to the topic..



Love Dave's drumming. He changes it up here and there live, making it better a lot of times - but this is the great original. 

Also.. cheating a bit.
