    The fact that he is as accurate, dynamic, stylish, and all around technically proficient as he is is really what gets me. Most drummers only have a couple of those. It's like no matter what limb or limbs you start paying attention to when he plays, it's playing something interesting. This dude's left foot is a better drummer than I am

    My favorite moment was between 2:52-2:56 when Benny realizes he wasn't as clean as he usually is and he laughs, letting us all know he is indeed human, and not a cybernetic groove machine from the future.

    That groove was so thick and deep, it's still vibrating the Earth's mantle. His dynamics, accuracy, limb control/independence.. it's intoxicating to hear. He's a true master. I can't imagine getting to share a stage with him and feel the energy radiating from his kit.. that'd be one hell of a high!

Dont get me wrong, the lessons are great but somedays i just want to watch and analyze their playing to songs from the lesson

    What I love about him is that ease he shows when playing and of course his Gadd-like abillity to produce incredible Grooves (with a smile on his face). There are surely a few more drummers out there who can cope with but often look like being tortured while playing ( well Chris Coleman is another example for this type of lighthearted drummer)...Totally laid back, perfectly relaxed : THAT really blows me away...;)

    I spent the whole time just watching the placement of his left stick on the snare. He intentionally move inward sometimes to get a thinner sound out of the drum, and uses more rim shots. Other times he moves to the middle for a more solid sound (like we're used to). To think that he puts that level of attention into his playing is amazing. I'm always learning new things when I watch Greb groovin :D
