Drum solos

<< < (2/4) > >>

I mean, I like the drum groove in that song, always have.  But to me, it's a groove, not a solo.

As for my favorite drum parts that aren't solos, I'm partial to Refrigerator Car by the Spin Doctors.

Joe Morello's aptitude with 5/4 time was the whole reason "Take Five" was written. (Apparently he'd been bugging Brubeck to put together a 5/4 piece for a while so he could show off, which lead to the idea of the Time Out album.) Working in 5/4 was difficult enough for everyone else that it took more than 20 takes and two sessions to get the album version.

Then I guess this one isn’t up your alley, although it includes Lee Oskar, the harmonica player from War (think Low Rider) and author Ken Kesey.


Cream’s “Toad,” Led Zeppelin’s “Moby Dick,” and Black Sabbath’s “Rat Salad” are all classic drum solos from the early rock genre and are all very good.

It's "Working Man/Finding My Way" from the "All The World's A Stage" album.
