The Wickerman - Iron Maiden
Gone to the Wall - Twilightning
Trail of Broken Hearts - Dragonforce
Last Drop Falls - Sonata Arctica

It is a highley under estimated song to play!! Alot of fun! I've been a Maiden fan for years!
It's so important to make best friends in life!

I bet it's fairly difficult if you get all of Nicko's bass parts correct... ON A SINGLE PEDAL THAT IS. lol XD
I proudly play with Tama (snare drums), PDP, Sabian, LP, Paiste, Vic Firth, Aquarian (bass and snare heads), and Remo (tom heads)brands! My biggest drummer influences are Mic Fleetwood, Nicko McBrain, and Mike Portnoy.

i think Stream of Consciousness by Dream Theater is one of the funnest i know
A change of seasons is also really fun but i spent ages on learning that so i think ive played it to death.......its good to bring it back tho.
the call of ktulu is really fun to just to hammer it out and shit......alot of metallica is good for that

I would say almost anything by Dream Theater is damn well hard to play!!!

yeah i would not disagree with that!
but i found that once you learn to play a song like a change of seasons, you get a great deal of self satisfaction and i was really proud of myself....you feel like you could play anything :)

My self satisfaction etc etc shot the hell up when I played the drums one morning straight from 8am till 11am!!! ^_^
That was FUN!!! Lots of very fast playing too! That was also after having been up the whole night before and day before... and then I had to go to school to take finals. :P

bah! Quantity and quality... your playing was probably more quality filled than mine though! I am not as amazing as I wish I could be... I mean, sure after being awake that long it was impressive... but I don't know if I would've succeeded without that Monster M-80 energy drink! :wink:
