Radiohead deput new song with two drummers

Radiohead keep up the surprises this year and have now uploaded a new track on YouTube. The song ‘Staircase’ is included in their From The Basement session.

Drummer Philip Selway writes: “And no, you’re not seeing double. The doppelganger drummers are myself and Clive Deamer. Clive has long been one of my favourite drummers and so I was really excited when he agreed to perform with us. Hope you like what we’ve all done.” You might know Clive Deamer from his work for Portishead, Roni Size and Robert Plant.

For those who want an mp3, download the song without the intro and outro. Cheers.

Snare Drum Sheet Music: Arcadia High School 2011 Snare Break

Arcadia High School's 2011 WGI show "Rise" has grown on me even more since first seeing it at the 2011 WGI World Championships and has quickly become one of my favorite shows of all time. Below is the sheet music for the sensational snare drum solo. And, of course, I've embedded a video so you can play along!

And here is all the body movement that goes with it. Pretty challenging!
