View Full Version : Favorite/Most Original Drum Beats


A_Guy
09-23-2005, 09:10 PM
So I was bored in class yesterday and I made a top ten list of my favorite and most original drum beats in a song. (These aren't in any particular order)

1. Scentless Apreentice-Nirvana
2. Immigrant Song-Led Zeppelin
3. Demon Cleaner-Kyuss
4. A Song for the Dead-Queens of the Stone Age (Intro)
5. Touch Me I'm Sick-Mudhoney
6. Jesus Christ Pose-Soundgarden (Intro)
7. Sickman-Alice in Chains
8. Hurricane-Kyuss
9. Revenga-System of a Down (Chorus)
10. Metal Meltdown-Judas Priest

These songs aren't picked because of their difficulty or the drummer who plays them but instead for their originality and the way they fit with the rest of the song. Sorry if something like this has already been done.

way they fit with the rest of the song. Sorry if something like this has already been done.

The thing is every song has a drum beat that fits it or it wouldnt be there.

I realize that, but these beats especially stood out.

A Passage to Bankok - Rush
This song always makes me nod my head to the music; it's great.

When The Levee Breaks - Led Zeppelin
Quite possibly one of John Bonham's most famous grooves.

Break On Through - The Doors
This guy is fast!

A few of my favorites. I can play most all of them, it's not about the skill; but more about the feel, or groove.

Are you still looking for a band name Stubbsy?! :lol: That's been your title thing ever since I can remember.

Stubbsy
09-23-2005, 09:23 PM
Yeah mate. Well i have started ANOTHER band, and we got a band name after our first practise. But the original band still havent found a band name its really getting me quite peeved.

The second band we have already made logos and stuff and its really really awesome. Its because we all sat down and talked.

Ok but a song with a good beat that really fits the song well.
Californication-RHCP
Well all RHCP songs.

wayyyy too many to list.....but one that comes to mind immediately (as always) is jeremiah green from modest mouse (and as I mentioned in another thread, a LOT of janet weiss' (sleater-kinney) is also really original). a lot of his stuff -- particularly the earlier stuff -- makes lots of use of the toms in the main beat, the ride bell (WOOT!), and atypical use of open hihats...all of which has been having a huge effect on my drumming as I slowwwwly find my own style..

hmmm

"egypt" - Symphony X (mainly the intro, before the 1st Verse)

"Schizm" - Tool

"The Package" - A Perfect Circle

Iskandar
09-23-2005, 10:50 PM
"Schism" has to be one of the best grooves of all time. Whenever somebody asks me to "play something cool," it's usually the first thing I do.

I also have a fondness for Bonham on "Fool in the Rain." I play it at almost every soundcheck. Just a habit.

Rayne264
09-23-2005, 11:10 PM
i like the one from "All That I've Got" by The Used.

Win A Rabbit
09-23-2005, 11:56 PM
my favorite is "converge - the broken vow" (the "bridge" part 20 seconds in, oh it sounds good)

some others are:
a perfect circle - gravity
beatles - come together
incubus - i miss you
led zeppelin - black dog
the police - roxanne

nzrocker
09-24-2005, 01:13 AM
Another vote for "Fool in the Rain", and also one for "Snowball" by Devo. That is one of the coolest grooves, reminds me of a typewriter.

Oh, and I forgot, "Chameleon" by Herbie Hancock, I absolutely love Harvey Mason's groove/s on that track. So funky.

- In Weak and Powerless by APC Freese does a beat with 16ths on the hat while playing a snare/tom rythm underneath. the hats sound really mechanical and it fits beautifully with the songs mood.

- in the interlue of Thursday - Paris in flames, Tucker Rule plays just a basic beat, but at the start of every 2nd bar he plays "a1" starting on his floor and moving to his rack. Coupled with the bass solo he really pushes the music.

- Actually most of thursday's drumming is pretty stand out.

- Of course you cant go by Schism, the entire song just grooves even though its in like 4 time sigs.

- Ticks and leeches by Tool also has a good groove in the verses, I don't know how Carey does the hi hat licks while playing double bass. I heard a while ago that he used a hi hat stand that instead of pressing down the pull the top hat down, it acted in the opposite way.

- favourite drum beat would have to be Blue by APC, I love the ghost notes and the hi hat licks.

09-24-2005, 02:21 AM
Roxanne - the Police
Fool in the Rain - Led Zeppelin
Easy Skaning - Bob Marley
Camera Eye - Rush
Ticket to Ride - Beatles
Out on the Tiles - Led Zeppelin
Late in the Evening - Paul Simon

"The Package" - A Perfect Circle

Definitly. What freese plays in the begining of that song just fits it so well. Infact, it might just be me but, I really think pretty much every beat the freese plays in apc's song all work perfectly. There is such a great groove to them that just flows along with the song really nicely and it is almost never lost within the music. You always know the drums are there driving the song, same thing with bonham and alot of zeppelin songs. Unlike in some bands or songs I just totaly clue out to the drums even being there at all.

Double Bass Jim
09-24-2005, 05:02 AM
Camera Eye - Rush

Good choice I was gonna mention this one, that part toward the end with the ride bell hi-hat licks = :cool:

Drum Phil
09-24-2005, 06:45 AM
the beat from around 1:10 in AFI-Death of seasons

Out_Of_Time
09-24-2005, 07:38 AM
personally, i prefer the beats from any of Greg Howe songs with Dennis Chambers as the drummer

that and also John Scofield - Ideofunk, John Scofield - Offspring, John Scofield - Uberjam, and several latin jazz songs

as for beats with double pedals, i listen to stuffs from Trivium and Dream Theater

but then again, i'm into funk/jazz fusion and heavy metal...so yeah, just a personal preference :wave:

RichHunt
09-24-2005, 07:43 AM
I love the drumming Energy by Markmatter on this forum, I tend to play it whenever I get on the kit because it's very similar to the kind of stuff I play (which I guess is because of the tool influence.)

And generally anything tool sticks in my head, I love the drumming from lateralus.

There are a few beats from Incubus they stick to me too.

HeLLmO
09-24-2005, 08:06 AM
Parabola-Tool
Home-Dream Theater(me REALLY love this song\m/)
Rosanna-Toto
i dunno if this counts but i really dig Bravado by Rush
Ticks and Leeches-Tool
Lateralus-Tool
i also really dig Strange Deja Vu-Dream Theater
Paradigm Shift(i can't remember if it is DT or LTE)

Sting - St. Augastine in Hell

09-24-2005, 08:22 AM
There's something I love about the Beatles overall rythym... It's just great. :lol: I mean I can tell it's the Beatles because of the feel of the music, not because I know all of the words and tunes. I love it.

Thats because Portnoy is a genious! Whats your favourite beat from Home? Mines when the distorted guitars first kick in at 1.40 ish, its a great beat, fits the song well and is simple enough not to be showing off yet tricky to get right. Also the Hi-Hat groove at 2.25 just after that nice fill :)
I love home too :D

Hardly original. It's basic speed metal rhythms.

Bruford has done some awesomely original work. He did the entire Discipline album without a hihat! That would certainly bring out some creative playing.

yeah, when the distortion kicks in it is a amazing, i also like the part when they singer goes into the bit about living the charade, the groove is insane. and i like the part where he is just playing straight double bass, but hitting mad effects, and of course the outro, but the whole thing is insane

Well, yeah, alot of the parts in that song(Raining Blood) are, but the chorus has a nice stop start pattern, and its really how the parts fit with the music and his feel that makes that song sound so cool.
Oh, and in regards to Bruford...yeah, basically anything he plays is amazing. :)

Hardly original. It's basic speed metal rhythms.

How many drummers can Hit their toms 3 times and make a whole crowd of people know exactly whats going on? If your standing in a club and hear those 3 hits with the feedback going on, you know whats about to happen. I didnt say it was complex or hard, but for sheer power and greatness. I think in the metal world its one of those unbeatable beats...
But yea its not the hardest of songs

Agreed about the earlier Modest Mouse stuff... Jeremiah Green had some awesome, unique beats. His playing really stands out to me.

*Wow, last I had heard Green had left the band right before Good News... but now he's back! Now I REALLY regret missing out on them when they came to town a while back... My wife and her friend went but I wasn't feeling like going... bah!

WHERE DO I BUY IT?! I've always wanted a reverse hi-hat stand!!!!

Dude, you know it! I don't care if it's a "simple 2-beat", it's one of the most effective patterns I've ever heard. When mixed with Angus's kickass riffs and the bassists (forgot his name) just plain awesome steadiness, it makes for about the best rock song ever. You probably can't tell I like AC/DC by that, eh? ;)

Sam Bredeson
09-27-2005, 10:18 PM
Sorry about the triple post- I just finished reading the rest of them..

Primus- "My Name is Mud"

Most of the song seems pretty basic, but the floor tom/double bass/snare triplet + hihat quarters thing is just SO COOL. Plus.. I can actually pull off the floor tom/double bass/snare part!!

I think it was me who mentioned him though, so I won't say it again.

Walking on the Moon - The Police.

A cheesey choice, being such a popular song. Just the feel of that sucker is killer, and so clean. Not only is the groove killer, but the little things he does around it, I could listen to it all day every day, so technically entertaining.

I wish I could play that shuffle in fool in the rain, I'm going to ask my new teacher to give me some things to help me develop it


Ah I forgot "Fool in the rain".Probably the only Zeppelin drum beat that I listen to regularly.

Californication. Just the way it's played. Anything by the Chad actually.

C'mon, snare 2 + 4, kick on 1 & and of 3. Other than the grace notes he throws in there it really isn't too special. One of my favorites songs though


Rage Against The Machine - Township Rebellion

-Master Of Puppets - Metallica: It's easy to play but sounds killer.
-Battery - Metallica: I have no reason, just a beat I like.
-YYZ - I'm not sure if it's Rush so I'll say Neil Peart: Sounds so nice and fits in with the song so well it could kill.
-Miseria Cantarai (or something like that) - AFI: I hate AFI but this beat just goes on and on and on in my head
-Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (the song in the movie at the start): So damn funky.

Yeah I can't remember anything else at the moment.

I know this is an obvious one but Give It Away by the Chili Pepper's has the sickest groove. I LOVE it.

Space Cadet-Kyuss (I doubt many people will know this song though)

blergh, the drums in that song are boring, the guitar + vocal work is fantastic however.

The Bonus Version of 'Shesmovedon', on Deadwing I think, is another good example of Gavin Harrisons style.

'Sleep of no Dreaming' has damn fine drumming as well, Porcupine Tree have had such good drummers.

Pull Harder on the Strings of Your Martyr - Trivium (intro)
Dr. Feelgood - Motley Crue (such a sweet groove)
Schism - Tool
The Noose - APC (the drumming in this song just absolutely kills)
Passive - APC (just a really wicked groove, all of Freese's stuff is killer)

I agree, but the way the toms sound with the guitar, they blend really well. It shows that the drummer (Brant Bjork) can be original with soft parts as well as hard parts

The drum parts fits in really well with th guitar part. It's very soft and soothing. I think it shows the drummer's (Brant Bjork) skill because he can make amazing parts in soft songs with being too overpowering.
