Arctic Monkeys - Brianstorm Intro - Breakdown
Updated: Apr 20
Arctic Monkeys - Brianstorm, played by Matt Helders.
This is an awesome drum part which may sound really complicated to play but it's actually a lot simpler than it sounds, the hardest part is getting it up to speed, the goal tempo is 166BPM.
The feet are played together as a four to the floor pattern, which means they're landing on all four beats of the bar - 1, 2, 3 & 4. The hands are playing an alternating sixteenth note pattern - RLRL, which is played between the floor tom and high tom with the backbeat on the snare on beats 2 & 4.
