    ______________________________

    This song has been on my wish-list for a cover pretty much since the first time I heard it. The only thing that always held me back, though, was the double-bass madness. It's not incredibly fast or complicated, but I absolutely never practice single-strokes on the kick, which is why I am sincerely not good at that, at all. I do some bursts and patterns using heel-toe (which is the main reason I started playing double-bass in the first place) but I never practice straight up consistent single strokes.

    Here's the crazy part: the BPM of this song is such that it was JUST fast enough to be out of my comfortable range when I used single strokes (I'd hold it consistently for about 5 seconds, then I would just tense up and look supremely spastic) but also JUST slow enough to my out of my comfortable range when using heel-toe. What the flip?! So I practiced it for a week or two, spending time every day trying to get my singles faster, as well as getting my doubles SLOWER.. which is a weird concept, but I had to be able to control the slower speed when playing doubles. After a lot of practicing, the heel-toe control improved before the single stroke speed did, so I opted for heel-toe.. much to the dismay of my shins.

    Most 16th note kick patterns you hear in this cover was played using heel-toe, except for a few quick bursts of single strokes here and there. All extended 16th note segments were done using heel-toe (after which my shins caught fire).

    All of that said: playing along to a hard rock track is fun beyond measure. Minimal ghost notes, just straight up power and drive. LOVE IT.

    Also: this is the only track in The Quadrum Series (and my first cover EVER!) where I used a different snare drum than the other songs in the series. My main snare was tuned quite high and responsive for the other tracks, but I wanted a more beefy tone for this song. The snare that I used is Neil Peart's personal Snakes & Arrows from right here at Drum Channel. I've used this snare in many places (on 8 of the 11 songs on my Ventura Lights' debut album, Way Up Here) and I absolutely love it.

The original drummer of avenged sevenfold also did backup vocals for this track. So I was saying he didn’t get the full 10 cuz he didn’t also do the singing parts while drumming
