Drumming Since '85
- Feb 15, 2010

- Wichita Falls, Texas
- nothing swung?
- not many triplets
- drums played more as individual instruments and less as an ensemble?
Right. I'm just attempting to analyze how this solo is rhythmically different from say ....one from 25 years ago.Different style of music results in a different style of drum solo. Just as the rock drum solos of the 1960s weren't like the bebop solos of the 1950s which weren't like the big band solos of the 1930s and 1940s etc. And be thankful for that. Sure would be boring if things didn't change.
Interesting take ... thank youThat's a solo but it's more a Ride. An interlude.
More like a "Dance Interlude'.
Two; if you are playing off the harmonics of the tune; then that tune (seems to be) two chords that alternate; So in the drum interlude you're holding that harmonic pattern. It's a dance solo or something. Adhere's strictly to the form of the song.
Now his little blips and blings are intense; but he's holding that groove; he's walking the walk of the tune.
It's an interlude solo.
I don't think I heard a bridge in the form. It's just a 2 chord walk
- That depends on the soloists and the tune they play over. Some folks just play the drum set; other play from the music. Those are the guys I check out. Marcus Gilmore, Chris Dave, Justin Tyson, Ari Hoenig, Zach Danziger, Mark Giuiliana, Dana Hawkins, Greg Clarke, Dan Hawkins, Dennis, Ralph Peterson, Tain - are all great musicians who play the instrument at a high level. I'm sure I've missed some folks - mea culpa.Drum solos now remind me of guitar players in the 80's Hair Metal days; shred-fests. Lottsa BPM's.
As James Brown said "Talking Loud and Sayin' Nothing"
+1 on this. Not denying the skill needed just the not into the end result.As a hard rocker I am no expert in this style, but what I think I am hearing here is a heavy influence of "gospel chops" and stomp/drumline/marching stuff, more so than jazz or rock. It's not my thing, but it takes some serious technical skills to pull off these kinds of beats, so I have a lot of respect for these players!
