"Spring Fling" by Robbie Ameen

Robbie Ameen's drum solo from the track Spring Fling.

This is from his band Seis Del Solar from the album Alternate Roots.

I submitted this transcription to Modern Drummer back in 2000 but they weren't interested. You'll get to see my fancy copy work though :)

Finished this one on my birthday.

This was a tough one to transcribe. I remember playing it back on a cassette player with used batteries so I could get it slowed down enough to figure it out.

"When I first got the call to start working on Ain’t Too Proud - The Life And Times Of The Temptations, I was curious about which era the show was going to focus on. Their career began in the early 1960’s and they’re still releasing albums today."
