      Just another example of a good rock drummer who has a good sense of timing and feel for his genre. Solid dude. Almost too solid at some point that I had slight doubt BUT seeing him mess up at certain parts that most drummers would mess up when trying to write your take to a pre-existing track. Loved watching it.

    I think the biggest thing this shows is that both Shannon and Chad really understand what the song calls for, hence how they both go in the same direction. They're just there to serve the song.

    I like the original version of this song, but really dig Chad’s version. He brought an energy and emotion to the piece not present in the original. Not better, per se, just different. If Shannon ever does get sick or needs a sub, they better call Chad because he just proved he could fill the seat no problem.

    This is the peak of the series from Drumeo and what a brilliant idea for a series it was. I am happy that this particular video turned so many new people on to Drumeo. What they do for the drum community in unmatched. I wonder how many people that are pondering learning an instrument ended up choosing drums by this one video alone?
    Chad is an absolute monster player. You can really hear the difference between the drummers that sat in conservatories their whole life fretting over miniscule, insignificant nuances in music, and those that got out there in the real world, played their asses off, and became legends in the process.

      Its would be great if you extended each of these to a 3 song thing, getting more challenging and away from their normal playing each song. I know you did 2 with domino but they were both jst 4/4 rock songs. Lets make it more about what they would have played on a session for that song thatn trying to guess what the original drum track is. I actually suprised and pro drummers thy are so worried about getiing it "right" i'd rather hear what thier personality would have brought to the song.

    I love how once Brandon said the name of the band, Chad instantly remembered it was Jared Leto’s band, and that Jared’s brother Shannon was the drummer (neither of which I knew Jared had!)
    Chad sure does do his research.
    all that aside, it blows my mind just how good Chad’s rendition of this song is. I don’t really listen to this kind of music, so I went in completely blindly, but MAN did Chad deliver.
    absolutely incredible job, Chad!

    After having seen everyone else listen to the song in full, write down some notes, and then kill it, it is fucking WILD to see Chad listen to like 20 seconds of a song, and then utterly slay it on the drums to it.

    Ok, I don’t really like RHCP, but this cat… first of all all, a TOTAL blast!!! Seems like such a fun dude! Doesn’t take himself too seriously, but sharp and on point, and FEELS music… He absolutely did nail it and felt every minute of it. I actually prefer what he played to the original (though I also never heard the original)

    The mark of a true skilled drummer, he picked up on timing, and the style, just by the bass lines and the crescendos from the vocals, guitars. He truly fucking nailed it. He was not that far off on verses, chorus, breakdowns, fills, or ending. holy fucking hell I would love to hear him live with the band ONCE. I could live happy with just the chance for ONE TIME.

    I have been listening to the RHCP since the early 90's and have always respected their musical talent. I had never respected Chad and his amazing playing abilities until hearing how he responded to this challenge. He follows the music in a way that most cannot, and while it's not perfect because he cannot know where the song is going at all times. His ability to play this is nothing short of amazing. I have a newfound appreciation and great respect for Chad as a musician and he's right, he fucking nailed it.

    I watched this the first time, amazed. Watching this a second time, after weeks of Drumeo content...Absolutely floored!
    Being able to instantly identify the vibe of the song, and jumping right in is masterful. The similarities of the 2 performances hit just as hard as the deviations. They highlight the depth of drum theory, and made me realise how thought out a drumline is.

      It's rock n roll, just in 3/4. The tropes of how to do it are pretty well known, and if you listen to a song there's cues in the other instruments and singing to feel where you're headed.

    Ok I know people aren't always convinced these are really the first time the drummer has heard it, and I definitely understand that given how huge some of these songs were, but damn no hesitation once he got the feel for it he just went in. And what a damn good job he did, that was awesome!
