Ok a few things about this recording of me playing Chop Suey.
Firstly this is a practice video. It’s far from perfect. I’ve literally learned this much of this song in two days time and it’s the only song I can really play at all right now on drums. I quite literally watched @therealjacksepticeye‘s cover of this on half speed yesterday and wrote down each individual beat in my own symbol mumbo jumbo sheet music (he saw it yesterday and liked it, thanks by the way) of the intro, first verse, chorus and second verse,and it may still be incorrect.
Secondly, at the time of recording this I had no background music playing and I did mess up quite a few times. I had to cut a few bits of that out and still make it fit the rhythm of the song in editing,so that’s why it’s so choppy
And thirdly its not the full song because I still don’t know the full song yet. I plan to learn the rest and keep practicing as time goes on.
Regardless though, it’s been an adventure and a half and a shite ton of fun to learn. I actually felt bad for the employee of the drums department of the store I practiced at, because I was there for so long and it was loud in there hahaha. But I wanted to thank Sean, because it was him and the movie Whiplash that got me wanting to learn drums in the first place. :) I intend to keep practicing and I know I’ll get it soon! I’ll always remember this as the first song I’ve ever learned to play on drums.
