How To Play Soundgarden’s “Worse Dreams”

matt cameron

Nate Brown shoulders the task of demonstrating Matt Cameron’s drum part on “Worse Dreams” from Soundgarden’s new album King Animal. Don’t be fooled by the big rock backbeat – it only camouflages a challenging array of time signatures – including a section that transverses shifting bars of 3/4, 4/4, and 21/16 before returning to the comparatively simpler 15/8 groove. We don’t blame you for wanting to check the transcription, which is notated in the December 2012 issue of DRUM! Magazine. Go here to purchase the issue online.
