Hey Malina, here’s a simpler version of the ending of the Four Horsemen solo we talked about. Note that we could also just cut that part of the solo out altogether – it’s exactly the halfway mark so musically it would feel pretty ok to just cut it. On the recording, it would be skipping from 4:09 to 4:30 about. Just in case you feel like you have too much solo material to learn already.


Here’s a great drum run through with sheet music – watch how he handles the snare and feel free to get creative with/simplify the drum fills.
