Everyone. Anika Nilles is amazing. I remember discovering this video when it only had a few hundred view on YouTube and

now it has 1.6 Million. Her playing on “Alter Ego” was good enough to transcribe the whole thing. The lick at 0:19 is what hooked me, because those are quintuplets. Yep. So. Check out the original video here. Download the transcription below. And then visit my YouTube Channel because I am going to do a few breakdowns that explain some of my favorite licks and fills from this transcription. Happy drumming!
