Drum Cover – Pushit by Tool

I’ve always loved playing this song, especially the really grooving ride parts. The drumming is an exercise in how many variations of the same basic beat can be played in one song. All the tom-snare interplay is great and, as always, Danny saves the biggest bangs for the end. I love how he can groove so smooth without funking it up with extra bass notes and snare ghost notes. He is such a calculated and thinking drummer. It is critical that every drummer develop their own unique style and interpretation. Therefore, I do not memorize any song exactly. I have spent 30 years playing drums and have developed my own style, which I prefer. I keep my playing within the framework of the song and will play a part exact if that part is either iconic (like Phil Collins’ “In The Air Tonight”) or critical to the success of the song. Thank you for watching and lots of success drumming!!

NEW: Get my free drumming tips and tricks – Cobus.com _____ Laus Deo Semper http www.facebook.com As with the previous praise+worship songs I released, my intentions are VERY much the same. Recording praise music to entertain doesnt make sense in my mind, so my intention was to honestly and sincerely WORSHIP.. coincidentally just with some cameras present 🙂 I want to state though, I don’t want my faith or me living it out to build walls around ANYTHING or to exclude ANYBODY. I’ll never shove it down anybody’s throat or disrepesct beliefs different than my own, and I also expect the same from those watching this video.

    Your general demeanor (and improper grammar usage) in your response to this youtube video illustrates your intelligence level, and serves as an example to the youtube community as a whole. Your comment is an example of vocalized human ignorance which detracts from the youtube experience.

    As a fan of Danny Carey’s work (Tool, Volto, and Pygmy), I just wanted to take a moment to express gratitude to you for taking time to post your percussion videos. I refer back to your videos on a near daily basis while working my way through pushit, the patient, third eye, and rosetta stoned…..I know you’ve posted others, but I can only spread my cognitive abilities so thin 🙂 Thank you!

    Your drum cover made my penis soft 🙁

  6. DiamondDJandSound says:

    There are two things I’d like to say about this cover, and this man. One is that I cannot applaud him more for having his own style incorporated in to his cover – that is how I feel all should be. It shows that you grasp the technicalities of the song, yet, make it your own adaption and pay the original musician a compliment by taking something from it. The other would be that I enjoy the Danny Carey “feel” that I get from his videos, which I can’t explain well so I won’t try.
