Written by the incomparable Chris Cornell and taken from the album Superunknown, Black Hole Sun is possibly the best known song released by Soundgarden.
Although the tempo is a very slow and sedate 51 bpm, the drum part has all of Matt Cameroon’s trademarks in. The ease of his playing in the Guitar Solo is a lesson in tasteful odd time signature playing for anyone to study. The flow between the 5/8 and 2/4 is not only seamless but also musical! It’s worth pointing out here that the fills in this section are a large part of how this achieved as they all bear similar characteristics!
Spend time listening tot he track and soak in the changes before you play it and you’ll see that this is one track that might be easier to feel rather than count!
