This is a drummer hearing the Metallica song, Enter Sandman, for the first time and then playing it back. It’s entertaining.


It’s a great example of concepts in psychology that we’ve probably picked up about how experts use advanced mental models and pattern recognition to be “smarter.”

But it’s so rare to actually see this laid bare. Usually someone just seems smarter and the how of it is a complete mystery. Well, this drummer, Larnell Lewis, is transparent about how he’s processing the music in a way that I found very interesting. Enjoy.
