What do y'all do at the drum only section? I kept the basic feel of the part while the other guys went into the crowd and had a beer with a random person. It was pretty cool.

Will post on here when the singleís released over the coming months..

Nice..!

Looking forward to that one..

I always like when people create a new version of a song instead of only trying to reproduce something that someone else allready made for them..

There's some tracks here I'd love to do, round of applause to whoever mentioned Day After Day by Badfinger.
"In the dead of night" must have been fun to play, great song!

Let Me - Paul Revere and the Raiders. I think in 1969, it was considered the first hard rock song.

In A Godda Da Vida - Iron Butterfly. We all have our shortened solos.

Viva Las Vegas - Vince Neil version. We end with this. I get to play the double bass and fancy licks. Probably my favorite.

My main band does not play any covers atm, but I play in a thrash metal tribute band as well, and we have some cool ones at the moment, Metal Church - Metal Church are probably one of my favorites, along with Annihilator - Alison Hell. Some nice ones coming up as well, Testament - Disciples of the Watch and Destruction - Bestial Invasion... I realise I am in a minority here when it comes to music style though, so bare with me... :p

Turn on your love light by Grateful Dead.
Love the drum parts, and I love how guys let me have the spotlight for once. :)

Dead songs are fun for me to play too. Perhaps, in some cases, the double drumming made enough noise on casual listen to my ears that in my mind it gave me license to play busy shuffles and stuff, have some fun.

I have never been in a cover band in the traditional sense. The closest I could say were three projects:

1. I played in a band affectionately called Morricone Youth. During my time in the group, when it first started and before they played originals, we played nothing but 60ís and 70ís movie themes such as Rosemaryís Baby, Fistful of Dollars, Star Wars Cantina song (my choice), and Faster Pussycat, Kill, Kill, Kill.

2. I play/played in an art-punk group, piano instead of guitar, and we did some pretty obscure work songs that some people thought were originals such Union Maid and 8 Hour Day. The most mainstream track we did was the Beatlesí Iím So Tired. I never heard the song before so I approached it like I would an original and I think it came out quite interesting. https://whitecollarcrimepunknyc.band...ck/im-so-tired

3. My longest running band of my life, Palomar, did an obscure cover as well that has a totally different arrangement of the original, Hooray for Tuesday by the Minders. https://youtu.be/I43HnnNE2-M

We haven't even performed it in front of an audience yet. During the drum section i have just been doing a 20-ish measure drum solo. The band just waits to hear the pre-established drum fill cue and then they know when to come back in.

We dont do too many cover songs but the select few we do are pretty fun. My favorites are:

Guess Who - Undone
The Woods Bros - Sing about it(our own style)
Ace - How Long(our own style)

Wolfmother - Joker and the Thief
Ugly Kid Joe - Everything About You

The first one because it's a real basher and we do a fun thing halfway through the song (after the first chorus) were we do a shuffle instead of the regular part. The second one because i really like the drumparts of this song. Some different beats and a couple breaks that are tricky, but the tempo changes makes is a great song to play as well.

Besides that i really enjoy doing a Rush medley with a guitar player, which technically is more than one song, but it's a great challenge, but so nice when i nail a part/fill :) (huhuh... nail part hhuhuh)
