Yes, i have to admit im a bit of a drum fanatic. I first started out rplaying the guitar 6 years rago, played for 2 years and then rrealised i basically enjoyed hitting stuff hard more than rplacing my rfingertips on strings of metal. So anyway i thought id put together ra list of tunes rthat i even now, 4 years later, jam almost every day ron my set. If you got any great drum rtunes to share, then please rdo so.
|Song: The Sound of Muzak |
Drummer: Gavin Harrison |
One of my favorite drummers of all time and definitely one of the songs ive
played the very most over the years. Extremely effective 7/8 groove
overdiding 2 bars that never gets old to my ears.
|Song: Subdivisions |
Drummer: Neil Peart |
Classic Peart drumming with many interesting passages throughout the
entire song. Especially great for warming up
|Song: The Patient |
Drummer: Danny Carey|
Another drummer that has had a huge influence on me ever since i heard
him for the very first time 5 years ago. The Patient is a constant mood
changer and therefore requires both soft and heavy drumming, which gives
great variation. The ride cymbal part at 5:10 is one of my all-time favorite
passages and a pure joy to play.
|Song: Commemorative T-Shirt |
Drummer: Mark Heron |
Great great song in 11/8 and a really good tune if you want to get
comfortable with the odd time signature. Mark Heron is a beast.
|Song: Rosanna |
Drummer: Jeff Porcaro |
Easy, nice and groovy song with laid down by the great Jeff Porcaro(R.I.P).
Always a blast to play this, as it leaves quite alot of room for improvisation.
|Song: Uncreation |
Drummer: Dan Swan? |
The Hidden Step
|Song: Aramanu |
Drummer: Conrad Prince |
Awesome drumming song with a lot of open space to experiment with. The
whole middle-eastern vibe also gives the song a nice touch.
|Song: Manhattan |
Drummer: Tommy Taylor |
Tune made for nice, relaxed and easy playing. Good song when you want
to practice on keeping things simple. Keep the blast beats away from this
|Song: Castlerigg |
Drummer: ..... |
Nice, epic sounding folk tune with bagpipes and everything. Heavy ass
tribal drumming is required in the beginning of the song until it later
transforms into a quicker, more proggy type of feel. Great song.
|Song: What Happens Now? |
Drummer: Gavin Harrison |
One again a great display of drumming skill from Gavin harrison. Beginning
is a nice practice on snare stroke technique while the last part of the song
test your brain to the max with a nice 4 over 3 polyrhythm.
|11|| ||JJ Cale & Eric Clapton|
The Road To Escondido
|Song: Cocaine |
Drummer: ...... |
|12||The Reign Of Kindo|
Rhythm, Chord & Melody
|Song: Till we Make Our Ascent |
Drummer: Steven Padin |
Great song in 3 with a nice jazzy feel to it. Really good for practicing quick
hands and ghost notes on the snare. Steven Padin should get more cred
for his performance on this record.
|Song: Stratus |
Drummer: Billy Cobham |
Legend. Such a motherfucking legend. Groovin away, the moments that
make up a dull day.
|Song: Changes |
Drummer: Alan White |
Cool song with a nice medium kind of difficulty. Starts of with a hectic intro
with alternating bars of 7/4 and 10/4, which then cools of into a nice
|Song: Windowpane |
Drummer: Martin Lopez |
|16||Al Di Meola|
|Song: Midnight Tango |
Drummer: Steve Gadd |
Thank you Steve Gadd. Thank you.
