Dennis Chambers Hears TOOL For The First Time

What if funk/fusion drummer Dennis Chambers was the drummer for Tool?

(Don’t tell Danny Carey.)

Dennis is known for his legendary backbeat and funky style. So of course we felt mischievous and we dared him to try playing “Schism”, one of Tool’s biggest songs. It’s full of odd time signatures, quick, complex changes and unexpected accents, and Dennis had never heard it before.

But we didn’t ask him to learn the real drum parts: we wanted to see what he’d come up with on his own after hearing the song once. While you’ll hear the song with drums in this video, Dennis was actually listening to a drumless track.

“This is not me,” he warned us as he listened through the track, but “in my younger days, this would’ve been up my alley!”

How will Dennis Chambers not only learn a song he’s never heard before, but in a style he’s unfamiliar with - and in odd time, at that?

Since the song doesn’t have a drum track, he listens for two things: the style and the time signature. Watch Dennis’ playthrough where he gives it his own spin. It’s solid, it’s groovy, and there’s some unexpected footwork later on. It’s amazing how much a song can change with a different approach on the drums.

You’ve never heard Schism played like this before!

If you like Dennis Chambers, he has an entire 12-lesson course on funk drumming for Drumeo members. Join today and learn from the best!

I always find it fascinating how different drummers interpret a song,back when I was in a band,we went through a few drummers over the years. the same song played by a different drummer,with a different style, playing a different rhythm/beat can drastically change the sound of a song. this was a really interesting video,and great to see you still challenge yourself and come out on top. bravo friend,love the original,and love your version too. 🎉

The start was a bit timid and I was kind of expecting Dennis to be caught off guard by the middle part where the whole theme suddenly changes. However, what really sold it to me was the end. It flowed amazingly naturally and delivered a strong finish for the song. As others said: The pieces fit.

At the end you should have played the real song back to him and filmed his reaction to it. Would be really interesting to hear him compare his interpretation of the song to the real one. I did enjoy this a lot regardless and Dennis did a superb job with his interpretation!

@Nicholas P yes. By Larnell Lewis, best known as the drummer for Snarky Puppy. He had the drum track included with what he was given to listen to, which is important to know when reading and contributing to the conversation here. Larnell is a legend in his own right, in my opinion, so him having the drum track to go off of shouldn't discredit how well he did in that video either.

@Harvey Gitarista that's extra unfair because Polyphia writes a lot of their stuff in DAWs with midi before figuring out how to play it on their instruments. That's what gives them their unique sound. They are all world class musicians in their own right but the way they write their parts is soooo different from the traditional approach.

That's how a lot of people get turned onto tool. I've had several friends who absolutely did not listen to or even like tool. I've turned a few of them by getting them to actually listen to the "technical" aspect of it. Once they actually "listened" to it, they saw the genius behind their orchestration.

5/8 and 7/8 in the verses, 6/8 and 7/8 in the interludes. He starts playing time in 4/4 over the existing 5/8 7/8 groove at 6.30ish. Super super cool the way he can play fluently over the odd time stuff. Made it sound super musical and expressive.

Guy Whose opinions will offend you
@Pandemos I'm not classically trained at all of the instruments that I play, but I'm trained with vocals. I was always really good at listening to music, and I could repeat without sheet music and I doubt that I could be classically due to my dyslexia/dyscalculia because I'm lost if I'm forced to read music. I didn't know that Danny would be classically trained, but I'd figure suggest that his work reflects that.

@Guy Whose opinions will offend you i work with a guy who is classically trained and has been all over the world as a professional percussionist with dozens of orchestras and groups. He said doing a Danny Carey course was one of the more interesting things he's learned because it was so different and the timing was so esoteric. I've seen this same guy listen to a song once and perfectly replay it, even guessing how the drum set is lined up. It's nuts to see people with that sort of experience.

@Bogme That's a great analysis.I have reasonably good ears and have had cover songs and such thrown at me that as a bass player i can pick up 90% of the before the end.Also have the added advantage of looking at what the guitar players are doing if its a riff/set chord structure to follow/learn from as well. But it is a learned "trick".I can make a bass part that will fit for a song I've never heard but it wont be like the original.

Then someone springs "Schism" on you for 1 play and says "Now you play it" for the whole internet and TOOL fans to hear and judge. This is a stunning effort. Dennis is just beyond incredible. If you think you could do better, go listen to something like “Above & Below” by The Brecker Brothers one time and see how you fare.

Dennis is amazing at what he does. And Danny is amazing at what he does. It’s apples and oranges. Two completely different styles and approach. Danny goes more for a non western approach to drumming. Dennis is a straight forward funk jazz player. Even though he’s versed on timing and meter doesn’t mean he can play in those realms. It’s just facts. Love this video though as it teaches, you the listener, that your mind can recreate what Danny has done and what Dennis did and find there similar and different modalities.

Was about to say the same thing- there are no 'wrong' timings or notes in music! If it sounds 'wrong' to you, it's probably just heavy jazz and you're not ready yet 😜 (Just kidding obviously)

I would love to see Dennis hear the track with drums and react afterward. With Danny Carey there as well. :)

This is cool AF. However, it would've been even cooler if we'd got to see him hear Danny's drum track. And hear his views on it.

Exactly 💯 agreed !! There should be a two part concept playing your interpretation and then hearing the actual drumming a posteriori !!!👏👏👏

@X Y Mori Intus I hope so. Obviously, he's a drummer Danny likes. So, it would be cool to also see them meet at the tail end and have a chat. Now, that video would f**king rip.

I'm thoroughly mesmerized by this performance. Tool is a band that I've followed for many years. From medical school, residency, to my practice, I actually incorporate Tool into my rotation when operating. Danny is an incredible drummer and this video is epic. The mastery we're witnessing is overwhelming. Well done!!

Pretty great for only hearing this once or twice through. His take is a little too busy but he certainly gets the idea. Respect.

"I'm pretty sure that was wrong, but it felt great to me." That felt great for all of us. That was awesome to listen too. These kind of super fresh takes by masters will only be a joy to listen to. Keep 'em coming.

Seriously, it gave me tingles watching him almost effortlessly navigate his way through the song. It was so good! While there are songs I've successfully played after hearing once, none of them were Tool songs or anything else as intricate as Schism. Crazy good!

as always he can and does deliver... but i would love stage 1 the song, stage 2 his interpretation, and stage 3 him hearing what the drummer did. not because he does a bad job but cause i'd love to hear his take of what was actually done for the song vs his one take. granted his one take is at a HUGE disadvantage. but it'd be cool

Despite his disclaimer of “this isn’t my thing anymore” he did an outstanding interpretation! Any drummer who can hang with Tool’s shifting time signatures and moving bass has my respect ✊

@ultrafloss492 I agree with everything you said. This is no mere mortal and yet on occasions I've heard immense rock drummers failing when trying reggae for e.g. I think feel and restraint come into play ...but as you say they with this man it's so much more than technique. I appreciate the feel of his interpretation if that makes sense

Although I am in no way an expert, I feel like Danny Carey is one of the most skilled drummers out there, but I really liked Dennis' interpretation on this song. Pretty amazing.

As good as this first attempt at playing Schism is for me it first and foremost shows how important Carey is to Tool being Tool.

The only thing missing was his reaction to the full track WITH drums: would've been really interesting to see what he thought of the original part and how his own attempt compared.

This was awesome, especially the last two minutes or so. I thought this'd be like a few "[legend] learns..." videos I've seen but it was more interesting in my opinion. Felt very intimate in that you could see him reacting to the cues in the music, doing his thing but within Tool's ridiculous shifting boundaries. Could tell he might be uncomfortable with how it'll be taken but damn that was great.

Hey man that was awesome. That’s a great tip, just understanding that time signature and then you can jam to some very different tunes. Very much feeling the rhythm, great job

Some of the most amazing playing I've ever heard in person has been studio musicians. The difference is they can copy and modify ANYTHING while the originators just whip up the weirdest flyest work.
