Coming out of the New-Wave scene of the late 7os and early 80s, The Motels “Total Control” was a semi-hit for a band that was very popular on the US college circuit and toured internationally. As this song has such a solid 8th note pulse in all of the instruments and is played at a relatively slow tempo, it is ideal for beginner drummers to play. “Total Control” is a level 1 drum transcription with a few straightforward, simple rock beats and fills, and it displays how drummer Brian Glascock used the loosening and tightening of the hi-hat for dynamic effect. Get the note-for-note drum sheet music for “Total Control,” and learn to play this achievable, entry-level drum part.
