The band’s only single to have reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, “Sweet Child o’ Mine” earned a place on the 40 Greatest Songs that Changed the World list by Rolling Stone. Drummer, Steven Adler, uses a full range of dynamics — popping snare, exploding crashes, quiet rim knocks — to support the song. Adler’s drum part is an outstanding lesson in using all the tools available to drive a song from good to great. Download the note-for-note drum transcription for “Sweet Child o’ Mine,” and take a class in drumming musicality from the heart of ’80s hard rock.
