So what can I say about Ian Paice? He is one of the true legends in Rock and I picked one of the most iconic songs of all times for my tutorial: Smoke On The Water. Easy? No, not really, I mean, of course you can simplify those drum parts and make this a very easy song but it’s a lot more fun to add some of Ian Paice’s little licks. In my tutorial, I run through the song from the start and address all fills. Please note that this is not meant to be 100% exact but this is my interpretation of Ian Pasice’s style.
Thanks a lot to almost 10,000 people who took part in my what-to-cover-next polls between Oct 2016 and March 2017. The covers you find on my YouTube Channel were voted by you. Unfortunately, 2 of the most requested songs are blocked on YouTube: Go Your Own Way (Fleetwood Mac) and Come Together (The Beatles). So I decided to stop the polls for a while (it's frustrating that I can not guarantee that you will actually see the best voted covers). However, still coming up: Gimme All Your Loving (ZZ-Top), In The Still Of The Night (Whitesnake) and Roundabout (YES). Apart from more covers I'm also going to provide more original songs and more collaborations with young singers and players, so please hold the line!
Do you enjoy my drum covers?
