ABACAB (Genesis)

Phil Collins is ubiquitous with drums and drumming. He is a pioneer in the presentation of drums on a recording having completely revolutionized the approach to sounds and placement in the mix of modern popular music albums. I’ve always gotten chills when this tune came on the radio. It was an early inclusion in one of our first Loud Jamz events due to its infectious melody and relentless groove.

The combination of the former and latter aspects were influential in what warranted it’s inclusion as a Songs and Styles piece to be transcribed. The melodic nature of Phil’s kick patterns are so essential to the song’s development and coupled with the minimal deviation into fills are truly a shining example of how to “Play for the song.”
