How To Play “The Hunter” By Mastodon

Brann Dailor

In his latest video lesson, Nate Brown demonstrates Brann Dailor’s unusual drum part during the verse on the title track of Mastondon’s newest release The Hunter. The section has a laidback half-time feel and sporadic snare hits enhance the effect. At first the groove comes across as a bit random, but Dailor is actually playing a longer four-bar phrase. To see the transcription of this lesson, be sure to pick up a copy of the December 2011 issue of DRUM! Magazine, available on newsstands or from our secure online store.
