The drums. I CAN'T BELIEVE HE MAKES IT LOOK THAT EASY!!! The guitar. I love the tapping techniques used. Does anyone know of a tutorial on that specific tapping technique?

After 8 years of research and contemplation on your question, I have concluded that the most accurate term for the type of tapping employed in this song is simply "playing the shit out of the guitar". No need to thank me.

IamDave and have a nice day

capoman1 first of all the reason it looks so easy is that hearing it live it wouldn’t sound that way. They use drum samples to make light hits sound like hard ones. I personally think it sounds like shit but then again it’s my judgment against millions of records sold. And the tapping technique is probably when you tap and leave your finger on the fretboard for a few moments while you keep playing with your left hand. It is hard but the idea is pretty simple.

Agreed, the new stuff is tight but something about their somewhat more-restrained "djent-y" beginnings is humbling and pleasantly nostalgic. That's probably just because I found these guys in 2014 during high school so I associate it with "the better days" lmao.

Every time I tell people who it is these guys are and what they can play like, Polyphia walks away with one more new fan, including my 3 year old nephew that got his first guitar after watching them play this song.

Damn, I've had this album for a long time and the drums are good, but pretty much as good as you expect from any band in this genre. I thought they were programmed, which they probably are, but seeing the drummer play the song is crazy. This dude knows what he's doing. Technique is flawless and he makes it look so easy. Few drummers can play like this in this style and maintain the much stick hanging out from behind the palm. Most drummers end up holding onto the very end of the stick and don't have as much control, plus you get that flopping looking stick action going on and it makes it look like you're not playing as tight and about to send a drumstick flying through the air. But playing how he does in this video where he grips further up (correctly) and there's not as much weight behind the stick means you have to be really disciplined and have your technique down. I did not expect this kid to play so well (even though tons of less skilled and poorer techniqued drummers could still play the same song - just not so pro as this kid).

That stick portion hanging out behind his palm is called mueller technique and it’s very hard to master indeed!

Just because you don't experience the feel of the music, doesn't mean nobody else does and that doesn't make this music shit. You have to consider the age range of this group. Really great band and I'm very impressed with these lads. And the effortless feel brings motivation to me and probably a ton of others to pick up an instrument. 🙂

As a guitar player as I am, this is one of the best instrumental songs I have ever heard. Their technical skills are awesome and for their age second to none. Instead of criticizing them for being "robotic" we should support this kind of people. Am only 18 and I know how difficult it is to get that support. Great job! Cheers from Spain!
