This was my initial audition piece for Animals as Leaders. It was amazing to even be asked to audition let alone actually jam with Tosin Abasi while he was in Australia in early 2012. Although things didn't work out as I had Visa issues getting to the states in such a short amount of time to play on their first European tour it was a great experience. I played the drum part of this song as closely as I could, I wanted to play it with a bit more freedom (incorporating my own fills, feels etc in certain parts) as apposed to my other Drum Covers and especially the last Animals as Leaders film clip i did (Tempting Time) trying to play the piece exactly note for note. I also added a drum solo at 3:15 over a loop I made from the changing riff in the song. This was a lot of fun. I love this band!!!

There are fun 5/8 parts to Weightless that give this song a broad range of dynamics and feel. During this new section I also introduce the last part of the song which is a 5 against 4 polyrhythm played on the guitar to make the transition smoother. I think with this addition of the new solo section it joins these last 2 sections of the song together nicely.
