Have you ever heard The Grudge by Tool? If so, what do you think of Danny's playing, especially in the ending drum-solo?
Question to everyone including Gavin:
The last few seconds of the Grudge drum-solo, Danny pulls off a amazing tomwork. It's only toms I think, perhaps a snare. I wonder if ANYONE (as there seems to be quite alot Tool fans around here) know excatcly how that short part is played? It's only 5 seconds or something, but incredibly hard to memorize how he plays. I would really, really appreciate it if someone would make a piece of drum-notes for those 5-6 secs, or perhaps a video where it is being played really slow.
Thanks for reading!
This guy gets it pretty close...
...except the part at about 0:35; this guy plays the alternating ruffs between the floor tom and double bass whereas Danny plays them between the snare and double bass.
On the recording, there are toms and snare, but sometimes Danny's snare sound can be deceptive as he usually plays with the snares off (at least from Aenima on).
It's a difficult piece to learn, but I just listened to it thousands of times until it got under my skin. I highly recommend trudging through it, as for me it is one of the most satisfying songs to jam on when I sit down to practice.
Hope that helps...
