    Default AHHHHH! someone help!

    ok I having alot of trouble going from one beat to another to start off this song:

    S /xxxx/xxxx/xxxx/xxxx/--x-/--x-
    FT /xxxx/xxxx/xxxx/xxxx/----/----
    HH /----/----/----/----/xxxx/xxxx
    B /----/----/----/----/x--x/x---


    Does anyone have any tips to help me out with this?
    (sorry about the format I can't do tabs)so x just represents hitting that drum.
    I've got the beat down fine but I just can't get down the transition between the two diffrent beats.
    also the song is called "uncle milos side show"
    Band: System of a Down
    Song: Atwa

    Looked around for the song to try tab it out myself, but I couldn't find it. What band plays it?

    What tempo is it?

    If you have the tab, all you need to do it sit down and nut it out. As far as I can see the fill and then the beat that you go into are pretty basic. Just practice the transition between them, and you'll have it instantly.

    Ohhh... Well in that case, I can't help you.

    The way you've tabbed it out, it just looks like the fill at the start is in quarter notes. Then it goes into a simple half time feel (Snares on beat 3).

    Am I right?

    Tempo? I think its 120 but it doesnt seem right.


    thats exactly what i mean. I m having trouble going into that beat and then hitting the bass drum fast enough to continue the song.

    The bass drum is your problem?

    I'd be more worried about the hats. Just keep practising the transition between the two beats. You'll get it eventually.
