Chris Coleman is one of my favorite drummers. These solos showcase a lot of the reasons why. He is extremely musical even when navigating extremely tricky situations. These transcriptions are taken from some of the “Vic Firth: Artist Spotlight” videos he did, which you can find on YouTube. CHECK THEM OUT. I have provided the chopped up audio from the videos so you won’t have to search for a reference. These were hard to transcribe because the first page Chris is playing complicated stuff, and on the second page, Chris is playing complicated stuff with his phrases starting on the second and last 16th note of the beat. Luckily there is a metronome in the background giving you where the “down beat” is…hahaha.
