Default Re: Dominic Howard

Dominic is great, I think he really plays solid, groovy parts for every muse song. I usually like drummers who will improvise more often, but I still think that Dominic plays some really choice stuff. I especially like the drums on assassin, unnatural selection, hysteria, sunburn, knights of cydonia, bliss, new born, micro cuts, plenty of other songs. I especially like on hysteria about halfway through the guitar solo when it goes from the verse chord changes to the chorus chord changes. In one bar there's a drum fill where the drums accent every 3rd 16th note and the guitar accents every 4th 16th note creating this real nice hemiola. Also the odd number of bars in the breakdown at the very end of the song is just perfect, especially the very last bar where the drum fill mimics the guitar and bass riff
