    Hard to believe that Steve Smith himself gives us a lesson on how to play the song. Back in the day when I was learning to play drums, you'd listen to the record over and over and over again for hours just to figure out what they were doing. What a world we live in... and thank you Steve Smith for putting out this video.

      No doubt. Seriously though, just hearing him play Journey parts (which due to the whole band, their history, from Santana onwards, I mean no reduction), but he's a really, really badass drummer. I'm not sure his playing was ever truly showcased playing in bands. It's a whole new monster solo. Clinics .. un freaking believable player.

    I remember trying to figure this part out when I was a kid and the album had just been released. Like "Tom Sawyer," it's far more challenging to play correctly than one might think. Steve has been a hero of mine for decades. A living legend and bona fide master of the instrument. He just keeps getting better and better.

    • kcorpora1
      kcorpora1 Hace 2 meses

      @ocho cabra Tom Sawyer is great but it is basically follow the bass. It is awesome and the fills but it is not a groove that you had to go into the laboratory to create.
      A simple groove can be the most complex groove to create.

    Steve Smith’s thunderous tom work on Faithfully inspired me to start playing drums when I was 6 years old… I’ve toured & recorded with big names and got to live the big band lifestyle, without losing myself to the beast. I’m a studio drummer now and couldn’t have asked for a better music career!

    The Ping ride is one of those unsung heroes of so many classic/progressive rock recordings. If you've ever listened closely, it's all over Permanent Waves and Moving Pictures too! While Neil preferred it for hard charging impossibly fast bell ride patterns, Steve uses here for very tasteful accents on a deceptively tricky groove. The way he develops the parts in this song making use of the various toms to fill space is just beautiful.

    This is why I love this guy. Easily could have been a straight four on the floor with no flourishes, but those tom and ride bell syncopated components make the song THAT much better, even though a lay listener may not be able to describe why. Now I gotta check “Stone in Love,” again, because I remember similar ride bell inserts that jumped out at me when I was a kid. Steve, THANK YOU for this wonderful tutorial!

    I remember trying to learn this when I was 12 and couldn't figure out how to play the ride bell pattern while playing everything else. It wasn't until I got much better that I realized what he was doing and more importantly, HOW he was doing it. I learned so much by listening and watching him play. I always watched the drummers on MTV and they didn't get any better than this man! I owe so much to him and all the amazing players that influenced me and my playing. Such a legend!

    What I really like about this video, is Steve shows us the orchestration of the drum set.. (yea I'm old, they only started calling them "kits" later on.. haha), something that sounds so simple... frankly, for the sacrifice of the band, is quite challenging. THIS is what it means to play in a band. Nothing else matters more than adding to your one. the purpose. love this vid.

    This is my favorite song of all time, by my favorite band of all time. I was in Jr. High School when it was released. I had heard it on the radio a couple times, but never really ‘listened’ to it. Then, I remember being at a school dance when the DJ played it. I was hypnotized. I stopped everything just so I could stand there and experience it. I even turned down an offer to dance… I’ll never forget it… I told her “No, I have to hear this song!”.
    This song was the gateway for me, and turned me into a music lover. It changed music from something I heard on my little radio, into something I could experience and connect with. To me, everything about it is perfection…. but, I realized later what had really drawn me into it: the drums. The drumming on this song was a revelation to my jr. high brain, and has remained so, even though I am now in my 50s. I have tried 50 zillion times to replicate it while banging on my steering wheel, my legs, a desk, the pillows on the couch….anywhere and everywhere, really. I realized pretty quickly that Steve Smith was a drumming genius and perversely underrated player. His drumming his literally been at the center of my lifetime of music appreciation. What a legend. This video was great great great.

    that's crazy, I own a 24" Zildjan ping ride likely made in the early 90s by my estimations... maybe late 80s.. if I got too close to the bell side-stick strike the bell was a few notes deeper than in this vid... maybe upper shank of stick might sound really close .. as I recall. Still own that cymbal.... one of my favorites. Insanely loud if I hit it edge-side-stick like a crash.... like, deafening.

    I played this for years (in our cover band) and ALWAYS played it using traditional grip and cross-sticking. Never even thought about using open-handed sticking. I just came off the HH when needed. The use of HH (to me) was unnecessary and mainly a tempo control tool.

  • Vid James

    The part that I found the most interesting is that one of the most accomplished drummers in history, who at the time was well into his career, had to learn a new skill in order to play this. But the really fascinating part is that the skill he learned was to play open. I am a self-taught drummer, and a lefty who learned how to play open. After several years I learned how to play either way, so I take it for granted that playing open is not easy for a lot of drummers, even at the level that I can never hope to achieve. And, trust me, I am not even close to being as good a drummer as Steve Smith.
    If Steve Smith had to learn how to do something “simple” in the middle of his career, then maybe the things I struggle with are “simple”, too. All I have to do is change that mindset and not be intimidated by how difficult it seems to me. I wonder how many really great players miss out on the opportunity to develop other really great players, simply because they don’t want to admit that they found something difficult to learn.
    Ironically, I do not play this song open. It never even occurred to me. It’s more work, but I was already doing that work because I play flams on two toms at once for every tom hit.

    I'd love a breakdown of Lay it Down - it's just so tight and jazzy

    So glad I got to see Steve Smith with Journey a few years ago, before they turned into what they are now.
