Alive – P.O.D.

ALIVE by Payable On Death or P.O.D as they are more commonly known!

This is possibly one of the most requested music videos on MTV during the latter part of 2001. Alive was released in July 2001 in the US. As a result of September 11th that year, this songs positive message made it a highly requested track due to the positives lyrical message.

The drum part for this is just a riot to play. You’ll need to pay attention to the bass drum part in this track as it’s very busy and not for the faint hearted. Also, pay close attention to the syncopation employed and make sure that each kick note is accurately placed. Counting will be your friend with this chart!

The other thing to watch out for is the 32nd note fills. Although they look complicated, remember the speed is not that quick (81 bpm) and the fills can be worked on slowly and then brought up to speed.

Have fun with this chart, I certainly did!
