And....it would be interesting to find out if the OP made progress or bailed.

I was being a bit sarcastic like all of the other songs I mentioned. And anyone who thinks it's easy obviously can't play the song properly.

An easier Rush song would be Subdivisions
(sarcasm... again)

can you cover songs where twinpedals are used with singlepedals ? ( if you change it a bit)
becaus we want to cover in too deep from sum 41 and the drummer uses twinpedals

you guys already start with playing songs, thats wrong in my opinion, you should first learn some basic rythims and suchs and make your technique better for hitting your hihat for example, if you watch some movies of ACDC you will notice he hits his hihat with great technique so it sounds better with the music. But people thats what I think I could be totally wrong

I have to agree with the posts on AC/DC. You can also supplement it with Tommy Igoe's Groove Essentials 1. You'll develop reading skills as well. Even if you don't plan on getting into situations where you'll have to read, you'll be able to find stuff on the web or drumming mags where everything is written out and not have to rely on finding an audio version of it to be able to play it. Plus, when you use sheets with a metronome/drum machine, etc., it makes the woodshedding part of your practice more productive as you'll be able to hear the click, see the notes, and develop a stronger sense of time and meter

1.) "Take Me To The River"---various artists
2.) "Travelin' In The Dark" ----Mountain
3.) "Mississippi Queen" ------Mountain
4.) "Sing, Sing, Sing" ---------Benny Goodman
5.) "The Boys Are Back In Town"---Thin Lizzy
6.) "I Heard it Through The Grapevine"---Marvin Gaye
7.) "Running Down A Dream"---Tom Petty
8.) ""Paint It Black"---Rolling Stones
9.) "Radio Free Europe"--REM
10.) Anything with Al Jackson, Art Blakely, Roger Dawkins, Jim Gorden, Jim Keltner, Kenny Aronoff, Sly Dunbar and any of the reggae drummers.

Music like this will teach you the value of setting and playing a groove. If the band can't follow you then you won't last long out in the real world. Concentrate on rudiments and then on how to make them swing. If you listen to Irish reels and Scottish pipe music you can hear how they make the music move. You can do some serious damage in just 4/4. It's all in how you play it. You can push the beat, Latin, hang off of the beat, real R&B/Funk/Reggae or come straight down on it, Rock and Roll/Pop. You might want to try mastering the shuffle as well.

You've got a long, wonderful trip ahead of you. Good luck with it!

Bad Co

Trapeze

Doobie Brothers

ZZTop

Creedence

Played to these a lot in the early '70's. Most songs were pretty straight forward. Plus, anything Motown or soul because that's where my heart lies.

John Mayer's "Vultures" (Steve Jordan on the kit) is a great track to learn. SUPER simple groove, good tempo, great vibe. A classic example of pocket drumming. Looks like you've got your pick ... lots of great suggestions in this thread :)

A great question to ask, though, is what kind of music are you most passionate about? Who do you like listening to? Try and find a track or two by that artist, if possible. The heart's just as key as the mechanics.

Classic Rock's pretty easy to play along to - for really simple stuff I'd recommend some ACDC and Credence Clearwater Revival.

I bought my first set almost 3 months ago. Although I do agree it is important to start out with basic rhythms (I would suggest picking up a book) it doesn't hurt to find simple songs that you can practice along to. I have had the best luck with pretty much anything by The Black Keys.

In my opinion, I think that these are some of the easier Songs to learn

1) Seven Nation Army - White Stripes
2) Cryin' - Aerosmith
3) Fortunate Son - Creedence Clearwater Revival
4) Listen to Her Heart - Tom Perry & The Heartbreakers
5) Bleed it Out - Linkin Park
6) Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen
7) Burnin' For You - Blue Oyster Cult
8) Feels like the First Time - Foreigner
9) How you Remind Me - Nickleback
10) I Know What I Am - Band of Skulls


Kick Pedals in these songs aren't that difficult to learn

They are in order, The top one is the one if you've just started playing and the bottom one is for once you've got a bit used to it.

Default Re: 10 Best Drum Songs to Learn as a Beginner

I'm just going to base it off of what songs I learned from the most in the beginning.

Say It Ain't So - Weezer
Smells Like Teen Spirit- Nirvana
Dani California - Red Hot Chili Peppers
The Beautiful People - Marilyn Manson
Du Hast - Rammstien
TNT/Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap/every other AC/DC song
Rainbow In the Dark - Dio
Livin' After Midnight - Judas Priest
YYZ / anything by -Rush
My Immortal (band version) - Evanescence*

*The drum fills at the end are really awesome practice for fills of that sort, but the rest of the song has no drums.

Default Re: 10 Best Drum Songs to Learn as a Beginner

So over the last couple of days I've found myself reviewing this thread because I'm always looking for new songs to learn. It's quite interesting to me what some people consider "easy". I bring them up and they intimidate me from the get go and I think, there's no way I'm ready for that..and I'm not a complete noob anymore, playing 15 months now (I know, still a noob compared to most of you). The OP was a noob who was just starting out if I remember correctly so this becomes even more of a point in my opinion

It got me wondering...when people list their songs are they meaning it's an easy beat and therefore easy to play along a simple beat and keep time to or do they actually believe a noob could conquer all of the fills, etc in the song? For example, someone listed Blue Oyster Cult's Burning for You. The basic beat in that song is pretty straight forward but there are several fills in there that are pretty intimidating for someone like me. (Maybe I'm a slow learner or just old and it takes me longer, I don't know).

While I know this is an old thread and the OP may not even need these lists anymore, I would be interested to know some of the definitions of "easy". I'm not putting anyone down, I love looking thru the lists and trying some of these songs, its a great place for ideas and inspiration...the whole thing just got me thinking about how relative the term "easy" is and how subjective these types of things can be.

Anyways, thanks for letting me ramble on...

I entirely sympathize with you Mary, going through these lists of songs, I'm wondering how can YYZ from Rush for exemple, be an "easy" song for a beginner, somehow, such songs are for the intermediate to advanced drummer and far to difficult for someone just starting drumming.

I believe a new drummers fight is motivation.

I say, whatever the song is that draws the new drummers imagination.

The first song I really considered was Money by Pink Floyd...though I had been involved in understanding many songs from a general listening/drumming stand point before that.

Nothing like starting to see alternate time early on...

Twist & Shout - Beatles
Ruby Tuesday - Rolling Stones
Ride On - AC/DC
No One Like You - Scorpions
Communication Breakdown - Led Zep
Enter Sandman - Metallica
Are You Gonna Go My Way - Lenny Kravitz

If u want some good Chrsitian stuff taht will challange you

Flame in all of US- TFK
Life Scars Apoligies- Decyfer Down
Whispers in the Dark- Skillet
Secrets- Audio Adrenaline
Shut it Down- MxPx
Reaching for You- Lincolin Brewster
Worth Dying For- Consume me now

What i missed out on my early years of drumming was getting a solid groove, knowing where to put accents, grace notes and other colour into my beats and in general just knowing that its more than a 4/4 rock groove but a way to serve the entire musical experiance in the band. Knowing that eventhough sure it was all just the same kinda groove, but the way the song sounded allowed me to approach the way the groove sounded with the feel of the song. Id say these songs can cover that pretty well.

Intermediate I think would be

Boom- POD
Confessions- Pillar
Calafornication- RHCP (getting the groove takes time to do it perfectly)
Rock this town- Brian Setzer
Whatever- godsmack
Dream Theater- Never Enough
Muse- Assassin


Advanced

Meshuggah- Soul Burn
Coheed and Cambria- Welcome Home
Three- !!!anything by them is pretty tricky
Dream Theater- 6:00, Voices, Lie, As I am

Beyond Advanced

Meshuggah- Bleed
Behemoth- Left hand ov god
Dream Theater- Home, Change of Seasons

Sorry but that is incredibly arrogant and misleading. Although perhaps a simple back beat it is a very fast song with alternating counts for the kick drum and hi-hat, and may be far beyond the reach of beginner novice drummers. Although I can play my way through a good number of the top ten listed by other users here I quickly skipped past this song after a few attempts.

Drum notation - http://www.911tabs.com/link/?3623027

As an experienced drummer you should be encouraging newbies, not discouraging or intimidating them. That is akin to telling a child who can't do long division that they are just stupid and should give up now.

Some early Beatles...
Just grab the Please Please Me album...
Every one of those songs is playalongwithable....you'll learn how to keep time and as you get better you can play your own beats over Ringos....
I still do it today...

Some of the other suggestions are just crazy.

Alternatives I like...which I use for warming up when I'm practicing....

The Kinks....Corner Shop.....Kings of Leon...

All straightforward.

This thread has deteriorated from the original question to people just throwing out what THEY like to play or learnt to play.

Like...I recommend you learn to play the full Tales From Topographic Oceans album by Yes.....good luck with that

YYZ is a beginner song?!?!

Thats it, I am quitting, I have worked on some of those fills for ages and still can't get them quite right!

That's just what I was thinking. One of the first posts pointed out that that the instructor
asked what songs HE wanted to play. You gotta' go for the songs YOU want to play first.
It's only the first step of a long walk.

Some Coldplay would be good for a beginner I reckon.

Another is Snow Patrol, pretty basic beats throughout their songs.

Hi,

my first ones were all by Lenny Kravitz

"Again" -- Just an easy grove.

"Stillness of Heart" -- nearly the same.

"Allways on the run" -- nice to try some fills

Other nice songs for beginners:

Tom Petty: Learning to fly, Into the great wide open, Free Falling
Eagles: Hotel California
Phil Collins:I wish it would rain down
Dire Straits:So far away
Police:Every breath you take

Greetings
Peter

Alot of the songs i see posted here are definitely not for "beginners". Of course some of the good beginner songs are from bands like The Cars and AC/DC and maybe Black Crowes. Even alot of the songs from those kinda bands will throw you for a curve.
