I know I made a few mistakes and the sound quality isn't the greatest (using daughter's iPhone) but if you can check it out and let me know what you think and what I need to work on, I would appreciate it.
Sounds like you got the mechanics of the song down pretty good. There are the obvious tempo issues in there, you're playing sextuplets whereas he's only playing triplets in the verse's tom beat, and I think it needs more of an anticipated crash in the chorus, if you know what I mean. It's like the 8th note before the 1 count in the first measure of the chorus where the crash happens. The next measure in the chorus he does a double stroke on the snare after 4 on the Eigth and sixteenth before the next 1 count with a crash on the 1. It alternates this way for the chorus.
This is why I don't teach. ha ha! Hope it helps...if you know what I'm saying.
Thanks for the reply! I will keep working on it, I couldn't hear the triplet part but will listen more closely and hopefully I can hear it and make adjustments. I know I need to practice this a few more hundred times.
