Hola, Frost*ie de Espaņa!

Surprisingly, I've never actually attempted Milliontown on the kit. (Although I frequently play it on my steering wheel ;))

The one critical thing to remember about all of the tracks on Milliontown-the-album is that Jem started out with a programmed drum part on them and Andy Edwards played over the top of it... and in some places the original programmed part still remains. This is evident most particulary in the chorus of No Me No You where there's half-open hi-hat on fours, a syncopated ride and snare off the beat. You need three hands to do that* ;)

So for learning purposes, I'd listen to it live. Either Nick d'Virgilio's take on it on The Philadelphia Experiment or one from YouChoooob (Here's a bit of Andy Edwards, the original drummer, doing it in 08). Only problem is the audio on YouTube clips is usually a bit pants due to mobile phones and consumer cameras not having the seriously pro-quality mics necessary to capture drums authentically (you'd think they'd have sorted it out by now ;) ), but it might help with those "how the hell did he do that" moments!

One day I'll have a crack at it myself (and probably video it) but it ain't gonna happen any day soon as I'm just way too busy with work at the mo.

Good luck, and if you DO crack it, let us see!!


* Although you can almost do it by using left hand on hi-hat, right hand doing ride and snare - I've tried it and it works!


Thanks, at the moment I'm playing songs like "Deliverance" (Opeth) or "The Dance of Eternity" (Dream Theater). Milliontown is a song which I want to practice with enough time. At the moment, I'm playing it in my free time because I'm starting with a new group and they don't want to play a song of 26 minutes hahaha.
I'm going to search videos in youtube and I will try to get a nice nevel. Thanks you so much for everything. When I can play Milliontown, I will posted it here
