Default Oh my word... That fill!

You probably know the feeling: you're listening to a song, and all of a sudden it happens: that fill. The timing and phrasing you've always dreamt of. It might be played by your favorite drummer, it might be some guy you've never heard of before. The kind of fill you repeat over and over, and if you get to play the whole song, you're constantly waiting for the fill to come.

So, if you do, post 'em here. I'll start.

Keith Carlock at 3:48. Damn.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTlZ5eFJNt0

Vinnie Colaiuta, opening fill. Even more damn.

A couple of personal favourites from one of my favourite drummers: Jeff Campitelli

Snare and hihat combination at 6:10
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jGNgcRwKW4Q

A lovely little one-handed cymbal swell at 2:12 and then another great fill at 5:11
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b1DzRb4DHGw

How about Jason Bonham's fill going out of the solo in We All Die Young (at 3:08)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R-WqWaZxXSo

None of these are complicated, but I think they're simply very well executed and perfectly placed in the song.

Then there are more complicated ones, like this Gavin Harrison fill in Shesmovedon (at 3:19)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZ9C3R7u0DI

There's a beauty in this Spock's Beard song A Guy Named Sid, played flawlessly by Nick D'Virgilio at 1:50 (while singing too!)

There's generally some brilliant drumming in all those clips !!!!

The one I've left in the quote marks, if you listen to the guitar riff with the drum intro that bit at 5.11 it sounds just like the riff in "I Get By With A Little Help From My Friends"

I'll see if I can find some and post.

gavin harrison never plays a boring fill. have you ever noticed that? every single fill is something cool or amazing. even his simple fills are at least interesting.

Like that 1:50 triplet fill. Actually, surprisingly, one I can do with some confidence. Although slightly more simple, I prefer the execution of his fill at 0:33. Now that's what I call nailing it!

My choice comes from, IMHO, the greatest pop album of all time. Nik Kershaw's "The Works". Features Vinnie Colaiuta on most of the tracks & Jeff Pocaro for shuffle work on 1. Anyhow, "Don't ask me" from that album. Fill at 3:15 is a killer. Well documented, I know, but super great non the less.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kPUKS6UA500

And here's an explanation breakdown of the fill for those of you who have the time (& the skill) to woodshed this.

Bonham time!

Led Zeppelin - Darlene

All of it, but especially 3.28. Yes.

Led Zeppelin - Achilles Last Stand

I'm sure you know, but 1.15 anyway.

There's loads more, but those two come to mind first.

Although personally i can't stand the band or their rendition of this classic, a fill that still surprises me which hear quite often (due to the ridiculous amount it is overplayed on my local radio station)
is the fill 1:22 at in Alien Ant Farm's version of Smooth criminal

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDl9ZMfj6aE

gets me every time! Something about the snare sound perhaps?

Stewart Copeland's repeating fill from Hostile Bridge to Benny's from the Rumble Fish soundtrack at 0:23

And once again with the closing break from No Time This Time from Reggatta de Blanc at 2:58.

Gavin Harrison's tasty bell/chime groove from Slippin' Away at 2:26. That opener ain't too shy of jaw dropping either.

Glad you like it Rascul. I'd recommend listening to the whole album. It's a dream groove performance from start to finish. Pop music is usually regarded as the wasteland of drumming taste, but this album breaks all the rules. Not just the drumming, but everything about this album is the very best you can find IMO. The song writing, arrangements, production & players performances are all at a level so rare in pop. An underrated classic of a generation & a must listen for passionate musicians of any genre.

Well, to add something myself, as a fan there are several moments of Virgil Donati's recorded playing that never cease to floor me. Example from one of my absolute favourite cds I own. Please check it out:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7gXeA1mcdm0

0:55 unreal quintuplet fill
1:15 just a great sick effect
1:21 the effect that strange phrasing produces is awesome
1:44 going crazy with quintuplets again
2:36 sooo beautiful over the top moment, gives that feeling of tearing everything apart and braking down for a moment
4:06 and one more moment of absolute control over manipulating time

I feel like a small child everytime I listen to this performance... :).

The fill in Regatta de Blanc at 2.58 is your classic example of less is more, the fill immedaltely after at 3.08 is nice too and offers a complete contrast to the previous fill.
As for Gavin Harrison's bit at 2.26, not sure how you managed to just pick out that bit :-), the drumming the whole way through is absolutely awesome, what a lovely "feel" he has.

One of my favourites mainly because of how it suits the music and brings it back into the original song is the sequence of fills in Fool In The Rain - Led Zep starting at 3.41, then 3.45 and 3.39
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t2015S3A-lg

One of my all time favourite tracks because I love the sound of his kit as well as the groove / fills thoughout is Simon Phillips playing Sukarita on Judie Tzuke's album whilst neither are paticularily difficult I love the effect created at 1.33 and 2.23

on the 'retro' 80's pop tip.. another top pic for overall pop perfection is a little known Go West number called 'One Way Street'. It features on the most excellent and irony free 1985 Rocky 4 soundtrack but the groove and overall flair is unreal on what is almost immediately, a really syrupy pop/soul tune. the bass player is Pino Palladino but the drummer sadly, im not familiar with. Go west assembled a rotating cast of west coast session guys in the 80's being mainly a duo i believe.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18113EhisGU

anyway, not specifically a fill- minded point there, so back on topic! but check it out.

Superb, & thanks for highlighting that. I'm a great fan of Go West's work. Masters of deep groove bass delivery. I'm looking forward to their gig. I'm going to see the first gig of their new tour on the 8th of next month.

I will never forget the first time I heard Peart play the fill in Tom Sawyer. At the time I was at my girlfriends house and we were in her room with the clock radio playing and not really listening but when that fill was played, and it was my first time hearing it, I was blown away. Not his best fill or hardest or even my favorite really but it really got my attention. So much so, that I bought the album (not the cd) the very next afternoon. Also, Steve Smiths fill seperate ways got everyone talking too. So much so that modern drummer broke it down in an issue so we could all se how he did it.

Really? I thought the best fill was around the 30 second mark. First time I heard that fill, I just kept on replaying it, I didn't listen to rest of the song till a day or so later.

And it gets even tastier at 3:23!

A favorite of mine from Mike Portnoy

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aWkSD1eLyUA @ 5:53 he goes in to an absolutely crazy fill (or miniature drum solo). love it.

I have alot of favorite fills

This one is from "The Rev" RIP:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3xuzBeGmKaA
From 3:31-3:40 that just blew my mind the first time I heard it. (still trying to cop it actually ha ha)

And then the Mike Portnoy fill from Pull Me Under when the band comes out of the guitar solo and then does that one crazy ass 32nd note fill that was crazy to me probably because I wasn't expecting anything like what he was gonna pull out. Oh and also the first fills on In The Presence of Enemies just inspired me like none other to pick up the sticks :D

Then there is Gavin Harrison in the song Deadwing on 8:05 its just so powerful!

Then there is Todd Sucherman on One With Everything DAMN!

I have lots more but i'm to tired to think ha ha

Jojo Mayer played awessomeee with Screaming Headless Torsos. I wish he would start playing this music again.
'
Anyway, fill at 3:43. Orgasm!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5c36Ey1xzQw#

Gene Lake also played with Screaming Headless Torsos after Jojo. This is from a live concert. I call it the Gene Lake-fill. at 0:54

Bit of drummer porn going on here - is this any place for a lady?



Sure!


First some obvious classic fills - Phil in In the Air, Chester Thompson and Ralph Humphrey in More Trouble Every Day, Chris Franz and Steve Scales in Burning down the House, Bill Bruford's breaks in One More Red Nightmare, Ringo in A Day in the Life, Mitch Mitchelll's breaks in Fire although I guess they are strictly speaking more part of the compositions.

Love Charlie Watt's lead-in fill in Sister Morphine, simple but great. John Densmore's explosions in The End are a buzz. All of the fills by Will Calhoun in Loving Color's Love Rears Up Its Ugly Head - especially after 3 mins in. Will rocks.

For flash, Phil Collin's fill in Brand X's Nuclear Burn at around 2:50 is so rEdiculously slick it makes me laugh. At around the 4:50 mark and again at around 4:30 the whole band goes insane - these guys were having a ball.

The fill that Benny does at 2.46. I love sextuplet type combos and use them in my playing all the time so I fell in love as soon as I heard that fill.

Hope everyone is well,

I can't find it online anywhere but If you have or download the track 'United States' by Smashing Pumpkins off their album Zeitgeist, listen to around 8:37. The fill there by Jimmy Chamberlin just always gets me! :)

The whole drum part that starts at the 3:22 mark is amazing, and the high-hat stroke that resolve the tension always gave me the creeps :D awesome... (The drummer is Narada Michael Walden):

Default Re: Oh my word... That fill!

Personally I like all the fills in "Shortest Straw" by Metallica.
You guys probably wont think they're that great, but to me they're fantastic.

As for my own fills......
Whenever Im playing a faster tempo song and we change from Verse to Chorus, I often put a large drum fill including rack toms and the snare. Pretty simple, but it sounds amazing when you come back to the beat.

Ben Folds- Hiro's Song live fill at 2:58 (don't know the drummer)

Umphrey's McGee covering Joe Cocker's cover of With A Little Help From My Friends- Kris Myers' face-melting fill at 2:15. Pretty much perfect (sorry for the bad sound quality)

I just thought of one:

Mike Portnoy from Dream Theater - Glass Prison

I think its a little more than halfway through the song. He goes crazy switching from snare to toms back and forth, and it lasts a while.
Its epic.

My all-time favorite is John Bonham's fill at the end of Jimmy Page's guitar solo in "Trampled under Foot". Absolutely awesome.

A close second is either Phil Collins' fill near the end of "Fly on a Windsheild", or pretty much anything Bill Bruford did in "Lark's Tongue in Aspic pt.2".
