Transcription here: http://egyokeo.com/trainsong.jpg This is Train Song off Jing Chi's first album. One of my favorite drum parts. I only play the first bit, because that's the part that contains so many great "Vinnie" ideas. The rest of the song is good, so go buy the album if you want to hear it :)
My philosophy on transcribing... It's good for at least 2 things:
1) It helps train your ear to be able to pick out every little note that someone plays. It can get challenging with the other instruments playing on top, but most of the time, if you repeat a section often enough, you'll be able to pick out every little grace note.
2) It expands your bag of tricks. I've found that figuring out every little nuance in a favorite drum part, learning to play it, getting it comfortable, it only serves to help me out later, while playing some other song. I may not try to "rip off" an exact lick, but when I'm in the moment, I find that I can play more stuff than I would have if I hadn't analyzed other people's tricks.
