Play-a-longs

Here's a collection of songs to listen to and try and play along with. Don't worry about playing exactly what you hear straight away, find the beat and use patterns you know to just stay in time with the music. As you get to know the song better you will start to learn the form of the song (verses, choruses, etc) and learn when patterns change and when there are fills. Once you know the song, then start to try and imitate what you hear more and more.

Daft Punk - 'Get Lucky'

Michael Jackson - 'Billie Jean'

AC/DC - 'Back in Black'

John Mayer - 'Vultures'

Alabama Shakes - 'Hold On'

Guns'n Roses - 'Sweet Child O' Mine'

Dire Straits - 'So Far Away'

Fleetwoof Mac - 'Dreams'

Sting - 'If I Ever Lose My Fatih in You'

Pink Floyd - 'Comfortably Numb'

Tina Turner - 'Simply The Best'

Bee Gees - 'Stayin' Alive'

Aretha Franklin - 'Think'

Terence Trent D'Arby - 'Wishing Well'

Stevie Wonder - 'Superstition'

Vanessa Carlton - 'A Thousand Miles'

Phil Collins - 'Inside Out'

Nelly Furtado - 'I'm Like A Bird'

New Radicals - 'You Get What You Give'

The Corrs - 'Breathless'

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers - 'Free Fallin'

Coldplay - 'Yellow'

Radiohead - 'High and Dry'

This list barely scratches the surface of great songs to listen to and drum to. If you like a song, investigate who sings it and find other songs of theirs to play along with.
