Green Day is one of those bands that has a lot of polarizing opinions thrown at them. I love them, and have dedicated some time to reviewing, listening, and trying to pay attention to their form and style as a musician myself. I usually talk about bass guitar on this blog, and though it’s still a new site, I still want to work within the framework of bass.
When learning bass guitar, you’re going to hear that the drummer and the bass player in bands are really tight. So with that in mind, check out this drum chronology of the band’s music from their humble beginnings to the latest options.
Bass guitar players pay attention to the drum kick and the style that shifts. Often times if the bass guitar is out of sync with the way the drums are played, you will definitely find structure can be tough. I know it’s punk rock, and I know this is a drum video, but it’s definitely worth watching for all musicians. Check out the Chronology of Green Day’s drums and then pull out your bass and make a video chronicling all the bass guitar lines they created.
