In this free video drum lesson, I want to show you how to play a drum fill from the song “Vicarious” by Tool, drummed by Danny Carey.
The drum fill in question occurs at 2:42 into the song and could almost be considered a drum solo, due to the way it stands out in the track. There are so many cool licks and grooves in this song, but this one had a lot of smaller ideas that I thought drummers could take out and use elsewhere in their playing.
In this lesson I break down both bars of the lick and talk about groupings of five, double bass drum quads and groupings of six…some really juicy stuff. Have fun!
