"Alias" closes the album and is every bit as strong as the opening tune and the subsequent ones.
This will be my last video for a few weeks as I am waiting on new recording gear and -- hopefully -- my new Truth kit may also be completed.
0:13 - 0:17 -- Fill-in modified
1:37 - 1:39 -- Cymbal orchestration changed
2:43 - 2:45 -- Extra bass drums added (the sequence is one quarter, two eighths, three eighth-note triplets and four sixteenths)
3:00 -- Hi-hat strikes complement vocals
3:01 - 3:25 -- Since the second time through is played lower on the guitar, I ride on the low-pitched crash cymbal. The pattern is very slightly altered; I had a hard time remembering everything on the first tour and actually wrote the kicks down on my snare head with a Sharpie marker, heh
3:31 -- Kicks inserted between rimshots
4:05 - 4:07 -- Kicks obviously lock in with vocals
4:49 - 4:55 -- Again, kicks match vocals
Full drum set transcription:
Tempo = 160 BPM
