Drum Transcription: Pixies - Bone Machine

I love this drum part. The beat is reversed so that the snare drum hits on beats 1 & 3, which is really brain-bending until you write it out and learn it from a piece of paper. 
The Pixies are the foundation of modern rock music, acting as a huge inspiration for Nirvana and the entire grunge movement. A big concept in music is to learn from the people who inspired your idols - so if you look up to Kurt Cobain and ilk, this song is a big one.
Tuesday is officially Transcription Tuesday, every week, so reblog and we’ll build this movement. Let’s get more resources for indie and punk drumming - we’ve had enough classic rock, enough jazz!
