    Unhappy I need help with this song: Mandala by Circa Survive

    I desperately want to learn the drum beat to the song Mandala by Circa Surive. My problem is I have no idea where to start. First off is there a name for the kind of groove he is playing. What could I practice that is similar to the groove he is playing? Any help on how to play this would be greatly appreciated



    The grove I need help with starts at 0:25

    Welcome to DrumChat x.

    The groove doesn't have a name. Your best bet is slowing it way down and take it a note at a time.

    Maybe because of the off the floor sounding recording, it sounds a little like the drummer trying to smash the square peg into the round hole.

    HAHAHAHAHA nice


    he starts the groove off easier and then gets more excited and tries to fill in more notes. Take a better look and listed to the beginning. Watch for small details like he had a 3 count on the ride before going to the floor tom and count what beat the left hand hits the hi tom. Little things like that make it easier.
