There isn't one there normally but the band wants one there.Doing Allman Bro Band solos is always a challenge with two drummers so you have to make do. That song has lots of changes, as I recollect, but I don’t remember a solo outro?? I like your ideas so far. I get so anxious for planned ones - just jamming I do better.
For me it's a neutral. I don't really care for drum solos much, but it's also a great exercise to try and compose something enjoyable to an audience on my drum set. Growth.I think maybe I'm the odd duck musician - I don't like to solo, and especially not on drums. It's just not my thing.
Sure - I can understand that, and it's the same for me - I'll solo when I have to, but I prefer to leave it to those who enjoy it, and are typically better at it than me is all.For me it's a neutral.

That's a great suggestion MrInsane. Sorry to hijack thread a bit but Speaking of Black Sabbath I was looking for some new funk music and found Brownout's take on some Black Sabbath classics which just blew me away. The drummer is just killing it but every so simply.I had a similar situation when I was gigging. We decided to do a cover of Supernaut by Black Sabbath. There is a groovy little section in the song with just drums and some other percussion pieces. It was decided that I would solo, and the rest of the band would go into the crowd and have a beer with the audience. Needless to say I was a bit anxious. So what I did was keep the basic groove of the drums going, and fill the percussion spaces with toms and cymbals. Nothing fancy, no Buddy Rich drum domination, just simplicity. It worked incredibly well, and kept to the feel of the song. I would suggest doing something similar. Find a lick or fill from the song, and build on it a little. It will flow with the song, and make your life a little easier since you already know the part.
Unless they want the typical rock ending thing. Then down the toms, tons of crashes, up the toms, tons of crashes, flam the snare a bit, throw your sticks and call it good.
Thanks - It went well.Sure - I can understand that, and it's the same for me - I'll solo when I have to, but I prefer to leave it to those who enjoy it, and are typically better at it than me is all.
I currently can't get to the Instagram post of your drum solo, but I hope it's going well.

Weird that the instagram post didn't work, and I'm guessing it didn't work for many in this thread based on the dialog.

Agreed.Not sure what you mean by that, but for me worked perfect..
I just think to end a song with only a drumsolo is not a very strong idea (no matter how the solo is played), unless..:
1. The song floats after the solo immediately into another one, with no breaks at all
2. At least the last hit of the solo is accompanied by a lot of noise from bass, guitars, etc
But, like always, can also be a matter of taste..
