This was always one of my favorite slipknot songs!! This song definitely made me a better player. when I first decided I was gonna cover it, I could barely play the opening fill, not to mention, the one bar double bass part, just wasn’t in shape… but i made up my mind and went for it! and by the end of this shoot this was a total piece of cake. crazy what inspiration will do for you. 🙂 anyways… hope you like.

Slipknot is an American heavy metal band from Des Moines, Iowa. The band was founded in September 1995 by percussionist Shawn Crahan and drummer Joey Jordison. After several lineup changes in its early years, the band settled on nine members for more than a decade: Corey Taylor, Mick Thomson, Jim Root, Paul Gray, Craig Jones, Sid Wilson, Shawn Crahan, Chris Fehn and Joey Jordison. Gray died on May 24, 2010, and was replaced from 2011–2014 by former guitarist Donnie Steele. Jordison left the band on December 12, 2013. Steele left during the recording sessions for .5: The Gray Chapter. The band found replacements in Alessandro Venturella on bass and Jay Weinberg on drums. After the departure of Jordison, as of December 2015 the only founding member in the current lineup is percussionist Crahan; the other remaining members of Slipknot have been members since the release of the band’s 1999 eponymous debut album.
I shot this video with Drumeo in BC Canada. if you’re wondering how the the cool ‘matrix’ edits were done, they were shot using 30 GoPros which were mounted on a rig that Drumeo built for this shoot, crazy talented ppl.
