Anyone mapped out the sticking in the intro? Sounds like paradiddle variations with some echo effect, but not 100% sure what he's doing.

Was able to grab a screenshot of his whiteboard at the end.

Grazie!

I think the Italian drummer's video is pretty much correct on the sticking - but I'm not sure the pattern varied as much as he says it did. Copeland used (or overused) echo / delay a lot back then...although I like that way echo was used on "Walking On The Moon".

Sounds like some delay in there, to me, as well. in fact, I wonder if that's Copeland saying what sounds like, "Where's my echo?" at 0:53.
