DREAM THEATER’S MIKE MANGINI DRUM SOLO (WARNING: CONTAINS TECHNICAL DRUMMING STUFF!)…

Posted on October 18, 2011

DREAM THEATER’s drummer, Mike Mangini, has posted a video of his drum solo from their recent concert in New Jersey as well as posting his thoughts on the band’s Facebook page (warning: HE GETS TECHNICAL):

“Drum solo from behind the kit in NJ. I’ll be changing this solo in 2012 when we go back to EU by the way. We wanted to keep the same theme for 2011 so everyone could see something similar each night and feel like they knew it a bit; much like wanting to see a song played a certain way. I do improvise this each night, but I do stay with the same themes of 7, then 5 then 7/16. All the polyrhythms over those signatures, like 17, 8 and other patterns, are felt in 7,5 & 7 if you’re wanting to follow it.”
