I'm trying to learn it. There's nothing in there I can't play, with practice, but it's trickier than I initially assumed. There are a few parts where I can't pick apart exactly what he's doing, so I Googled drum tab for the song.

Question. How can you know that a transcription is correct? You see differences from transcript to transcript, and sometimes it's hard to tell from a recording - even a good one - exactly what's being hit. Even their own play-along material does not seem to match what you hear on the album, in places.

BTW, I'm a big fan of SOAD and wanted to revive this thread about their drummer, whom I think kicks @ss.
