Re: Larry Mullen
Larry Mullen Jr is also my favorite drummer. The interesting thing about him is that he has a natural style. You can play the u2 songs just by listening careful to them, they are not very complicated.
If you are starting to play your drum kit, listen to some U2 songs such as Stay (faraway so close ), Pride, New Year's Day, The are very simple rythms and very easy to follow. Also listen to the Fly (U2 vertigo live version).
These songs are the base of all U2 songs, they almost follow the same rythms with some variations.
The beginning of City of Blinding Lights (and all the song) is a single stroke rudiment (right, left, right, left.......) listen careful to the song to remark the correct notes. Just try to follow the song don't desperate.
Happy New Year's DAY
