Good friend of ours just dominated this song. Sorry youtube
wont let you post it man! Drumming like birds.

Well, not going to be able to upload my new A Lot Like Birds
cover to my YouTube channel, StavelyDrums, because of copyright
infringement or some nonsense, but I spent weeks working on this
cover, I want to show it to the world by golly. Here's the
description I would have put on the YouTube video for any of you
that care: Elijah Stavely, 17 years old, from Kentucky! UGGHGHHHG A
LOT LIKE BIRDS. No Place and Conversation Piece are easily two of
my favorite albums out there. While I would love to do what I did
with Hail the Sun's Elephantitis and cover every song off of No
Place, I'm no Joseph Arrington. Seriously, major props to him. He's
an incredible drummer, live and in recordings. This song took me
weeks to sit down and learn, and that's because of the intricacy,
speed, and dynamics of the drum track. It's incredible how accurate
Joe is, and how well he can play dynamically. He's easily one of my
main influences when it comes to drumming and writing. Major props.
Go check out A Lot Like Birds, and SIanvar, a band that Joe also
drums for. I'd very much like to cover some more A Lot Like Birds,
but that'd probably take help from Joe himself, so we'll see. But I
hope you guys enjoy, I tried to get this song down to every last
ghost note, so if you guys have any questions on what I played or
how I played it, feel free to ask, I'll be glad to help! Also, for
anyone wondering about 0:47, watch the music video for the song.
Special thanks to my girlfriend, Logan, for being my camerawoman!
