Avenged Sevenfold have been regularly digging deep into the making of some of their standout songs with their ongoing Breakdown video series. Today December 28th marks the ninth anniversary of the death of the group's original drummer Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan , and to commemorate the milestone, A7X have shared outtakes from their Breakdown episode on the song "Almost Easy," which was written by The Rev. The video shows Sullivan shooting some hoops before jumping into the studio and laying down his drum tracks with virtuosic skill.

Sometimes when I watch videos out of WiFi it goes out of sync. So are you left handed playing open handed or is the video flipped? In my head it makes more sense that my dominant hand is on the snare since I have more power and control for hitting hard or playing ghost notes. That makes sense.
It is the second song as well as second single from their self-titled fourth album. The song was written by the band's drummer, James "The Rev" Sullivan. In the second chorus the whole band sang simultaneously - all 5 members combined their voices for more of a choir sound, which was shown in the MVI that came along with their self-titled album. The song was included on Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen soundtrack. Originally, it was planned to be on the Transformers soundtrack ; however, it was not finished in time. Note: Both versions have exactly the same album version of "Almost Easy" except for the live version. Simply, in the UK single version, the track has one more second of silence at the end.
Try to find out his schedule in detail. You've all been so helpful. I even had someone tell me I should know better than to marry a nomo.
