    Lars has talent...he Wrote with almost no drum lessons the best metal Albums.... now imagine he had more lessons....

      His off time drumming is about as good as it gets and help develop that certain sound the band is know for.

      It isn't simple per see.. if you see it in the eyes of drum-shredders, yes he is not that. But ppl forget that he isn't that, thank god for Hetfield as the guitars will always be the frontman in Metallica.I think lars fits perfectly in with that, as he has said before.
      Not bashing, just unsure about your intent.

    Thank you for being respectful to the original and just tastefully adding in your touch. Too many people try to over play Lars' stuff and all it does is show their immaturity as musicians. Great cover of an absolute classic!

    Hearing this by someone who actually can play is soo bizarre. Lars's playing style is half retarded, half genius and works so well within the song. Great video!

      Metallica would not be half of what is was without Lars drum tracks. His drum tracks fit the songs so well. He have some groove, forget these metronomic drummers. Lars is a story teller. And he rocks.

    Excellent drum sound and very consistent! Is that shell sound, triggers or a blend. Nice work on the double kick... not overdone and very tasteful. I dont even think the HipFlexorcist ( Matthaus?) Drum teacher can even criticize this. Perfect work! Sex! (An dikk sammiches with extra pickle) keep up the good work, brother.

    What do use on your heads right under your triggers? Some kind of damping? And was that the only way to get your triggers to fire accurately? Because I recently made my set a hybrid kit, but having trouble getting Tom Tom triggers to fire accurately no matter how much adjusting on the module I do...Any tips? Thanks brother!
