'Moment's Notice' by Coltrane. I had to rerun this tune as I embarrassed myself at a night out recently when this tune got called up. I hadn't had to play this one is years and completely forgot the last section and the fact it's only fourteen bars instead of the usual sixteen. Such a classic as well and I forgot it. That's bad form.

I was horrified when I realised what was happening.

With my band I usually play easy mainstream stuff like Paramore, Yellowcard, etc. :\ When I'm alone I usually play more of Avenged Sevenfold or songs by All That Remains.

Well....


I'm currently givin' a whirl to Meatloaf's "Paradise by the Dashboard Light.

And, at first, it seems to be pretty basic. But it's another one of those drum tracks that has these little, hard to pick up, subtleties that can trip you up if your not careful.

It is a fun song to play, probably 'cause it's a classic 70's Wagnerian Rock anthem. And one of, if not, his most recognizable songs he ever did.

Great song! ;-)

This tune is a real challenge. Check out BB's lick at the beginning and the groove in the bridge section.

Van Halen - Hot for Teacher
Godsmack - Keep Away
Audioslave - Show me how to live

And practicing single stroke bass 16th notes to 120bmp+, just kinda jogging on the
kicks lrlrlrlr and putting the snare on 2 and 4 alternating to the "and" between down beats.
Kinda fun...

Just starting to learn 'Whipping Post' by the Allman Bros. It has parts that'll be new to my box of tricks. Plenty of subtilties within the 3/4 complexity that makes it challenging and fun.

I've spent about 2 months trying to play Keep it Greasy by Zappa from the Joe's Garage album, still got a long way to go.

Slightly more successful than that though is Fear of a Blank Planet by Porcupine Tree, anything by Gavin Harrison is awesome practice in terms of keeping tight for me.

Fool in the Rain has an awesome shuffle! I love the samba bit in the middle.

I've been learning "New Ground" by Tommy Igoe for my performance recital at Uni.
It's on the Vic Firth site and I thoroughly recommend checking it out.

It's a calypso/songo tune featuring a drum solo with some interesting hits to catch. Really good for your reading and your timing, and really good fun.

Crying in the rain by Whitesnake

But I'm also singing it so it gets a bit hard to multi-task at times

Fool in the Rain by the great John Bonham (and zep of course)
Tough beat but sounds cool when put together right.

Average White Band-Pick up the pieces
Classic tune, and my cousin's high school graduation party is coming up so I figured I would revisit this song as I am sure we will play and it will come up.

Give sober a go man, it's one of their simpler songs. The main beat is tricky at first but well worth learning.

We picked up a smokin' bass player a couple weeks ago...we're working on "Crossroads" by Cream and "I Got Mine" by The Black Keys...just as simple, get-to-know-you jams. Most of what we've been doing has been improvised, though.

On my own I'm working on "Would?" by AIC, "Drifting Along" by Jamiroquai, and "Immortality" by Pearl Jam.

Hi.

I have to learn a song for a show upcoming in march 2010. I know I got almost a year but I want this to be done as perfectly as I can. I've been playin drums for about 5 years now (and I quite wasted my time, I started practicing seriously about 2 months ago.)
Here's a list of the few songs I like to play. I do not know the exact correct fills for each song, but I play them.... 95% accurate I'd say. (I am also self-taught.)

Blue October - Hate me (slow and fun to keep tight on time.)
Chevelle - The Red (theres a couple of cool fills in this one :))
Metallica - Entersandman (99% accurate, I didn't learn the ending by heart)
Foo Fighters - The pretender (2-3 Fills in the 3/4 of the song I'm not doing correctly.)
Porcupine Tree - Shallow (very cool to play, but I can't do all the bass drums in the chorus, even tho I do the hardest part on the kick, I can't play the kick line on time If I try all the hits.)

The song I need to learn is Strung out - The kids. It's a pretty cool punk band and the drummer isn't bad at all. If any of you has some advice, or can give a listen to the song and feedback me on it. I would be GRATEFUL!

Any advice, suggestions and tips on the song are appreciated. It is a pleasure to read all of you drummers on this forum.

EDIT: I need to precise that I got a contract from a music school in my local area, and I'm a bit proud of it, knowing myself as a selftaught beginning drummer. I do not know any theory and I can't read drumsheets well.

Keep on drummin!

~~Phil.

Hi all.

I've posted on YouTube a couple of recent songs I recorded myself playing:

Toxicity, System of a Down

Dreamline, Rush

I have other ones there, but these are my better ones.

Later on down the line I'd like to cover Van Halen, Kansas, Journey, Yes, Cheap Trick, The Police, some jazz (haven't decided yet, but most likely a Buddy Rich tune or two), and others. I like to make it as challenging as possible, even if I screw up!

I look forward to seeing your videos!

And a handful of slower shuffles. Re-exploring the low end of the metronome and trying to get the swung eighths thing happening more convincingly and locking tight.
