After discussing Jonny's riffs and Guy's bass playing, that we best not leave Will out of the discussion.
So what are your favorite of Will's drum arrangements?
Animals: I remember a live performance in australia that really sold his drumming for me in this song.
Shiver: Kind of a cool pattern, really like the snappy sound he gets during the verses.
Trouble: Very delicate, because of the softness of the song but actually a very interesting rythm IMO when you drown out the rest of the song.
Politik: Strict, pounding 4/4 all the way through, but you can't leave this one off the list when the drums are so vital to the song.
In My Place: I've heard the beat is tricky to play. I'm no drummer, but I love how he plays the bass drum along with everything else in this one.
Daylight: There's something that really stands out about the drums in this song. I thought it was worth a mention.
Square One: And not just the intro either, Will's really great in this one.
Fix You: The drum crescendo here is about the only thing I really like about this song.
Talk: One of my faves, especially where he plays the hi-hat.
LIT: Just really effective.
Lovers in Japan: my favorite part is during the 2nd verse and the outro where Will sort of imitates the piano riff on the snare drum.
Viva La Vida: Just because he plays the timpani and church bell. Always cool.
Violet Hill: One of his all time best, with a lot of complexities, and, of course that pounding chorus beat.
Glass of Water: I like the simple fast rythm during the verse, sort of different.
I'd add more, but I feel like I've already listed half their songs.
