Seven Days Drum Transcription

seven days imageOur students have been enjoying learning Seven Days by Sting.

The drummer is Vinnie Colaiuta. In my opinion he really makes the whole tune. The song is in 5/4 but Vinnie plays a pattern on the hi hats and ride that give the impression of being in 4/4. Here I have uploaded the outro. There are some really imaginative ideas like the 4 over 3 bell pattern in bar 12 and the crazy hi hat lick that starts in bar 6.

If you want to learn to play like Vinnie Colaiuta then get in touch for a lesson:
