One Hundred Sleepless Nights - Pierce The Veil

Drummer Mike Fuentes puts in a stellar performance on this track by Pierce The Veil.

The style is metal with a shuffle feel, which always makes for an interesting drum part.

There are a few double kick moments in the song mixed with rock shuffles, 16th triplet fills, pounding tom patterns and a contrasting beat played on the rims.

Vultures - John Mayer

Steve Jordan has the ability to make something that is so simple sound amazing.

As Steve says "There's a big difference between easy and simple".

The Intro, verse and chorus have set kick patterns which lock in with the bass guitar.

As the song progresses the kick pattern varies, particularly in the solo section.

Use your ears to choose a kick pattern that compliments the music.
