The drum solo that occurs at 2:47 into the song “Rope” by the Foo Fighters is a drumming gem! Not only do we get another great track form the Foo Fighters but yet another mini drum solo for all us drummers to enjoy. The Foo Fighters really are trying their best to bring back the drum solo to the airwaves and I salute them for it!
And what a drum solo it is. We have all kinds of cool ideas being thrown in with mixed subdivisions, odd groupings, linear licks and a great use of space and timing.
There really is so much that can be mined from this short and sweet drum masterclass so get in their and take a look right now. Have fun!
