my covers band want to learn queens of the stone age no one knows. I can play it all except the mad flam fillything in the chorus i just cant seem to work it out. is it grouping of 6 with the first flammed?
chachi311":251etkui said:Set your metronome for 160 (it's a bit under No One Knows, but you'll get the idea.
First...play your basic eighth note triplets (two bars of 4/4) with this pattern:
R R L R R L R R L R R L | R R L R R L R R L R R L
Then...add a sixteenth note (Left hand) in between each Right hand diddle (without changing the timing of the inner pattern, R R L):
RLR L RLR L RLR L RLR L | RLR L RLR L RLR L RLR L
Start it out on the snare and then move the pattern around the set like this (on Grohl's set, Tom 1 was probably a 15 in. rack tom and Tom 2 was probably an 18 in., both top heads tuned just past head wrinkles and a ton of muffling...ie. towels, tape, etc.):
(Snare)(Tom 1)(Snare)(Tom 1) | (Snare)(Tom 1)(Snare)(Tom 1)
Hope this helps
