hmm, I don't know if I agree entirely.  It seems to me it's not so much 
about a "school of thought" as much as getting to a certain level where 
realize you're not supposed to depend on the drummer to keep time.  
me of Meshuggah whose guitarist has such a solid sense of time that the 
drummer is the one following HIM.

I find this thread very interesting because I'll be looping with a drummer 
soon, and I intend to try with both a click and without to see what 
happens.  It's his first time doing something like that, but he's 
interested in trying it.  I shall report my findings.
