    We have a drummer at church who can only play one volume: LOUD. He's a good
    drummer, but I can't play percussion with him. Congas sound plain silly
    next to his metal-style drumming. My wife refers to him as "Loud Boy"...
    what's another name for someone who is a heavy hitter?
    Another drummer always rushes the tempo, who she calls "Fast Boy".

    Ha! George's tongue's in his cheek, knowing I still use the same pair
    of 7As from 1997.

    - "Light Boy" Epstein to you . . .

    There are drummers who have but two dynamic levels at which they can play:
    FL and MFL.

    Howzabout Me Tarzan? He did hand percussion and not traps, but what the
    hey. For the one who always rushes, call him Typical Male.

    Do you go to my church? :)

    I don't know. Sir Poundsalot?

    Music director to drummer, "Can you play with more dynamics?"
    Drummer replies, "I'm playing as loud as I can."
