"Often recognized for its unforgettable guitar riff, Ian Paice’s drum part to this song is perhaps equally as classic. At a reasonable 113bpm – a tempo we can handle – this drum track will give you practice with sixteenth-note hi-hat and quarter note grooves. The drum fills feature a number of syncopated triplet and sixteenth-note patterns. A lot of fun to play!" -OnlineDrummer.com
"One of the most famous drummers in rock history, Ian Paice has been a main element in the sound of Deep Purple, the English band who invented hard rock. Born in Nottingham (UK), Ian Paice was a precocious talent and in 1967, at only 19, he was a founding member of Deep Purple. He's been the only drummer in the band history, though all the changes in Deep Purple's line-up.
The trascription of Smoke on the water in the music sheet, one of the most famous Deep Purple's songs, taken from the 1972 album "Machine head", is a good example of Ian Paice's style and techniques. Another version of Smoke on the water was recorded on the album "Made in Japan", a live album that contained a long Ian Paice's drum solo, an historical performance that still is a reference for every rock drummer." -virtualdrumming.com
"This is the rock anthem. The song’s massive popularity has lasted for decades, and learning to play the intro is one of the first tasks every guitarist must tackle. Paice plays an accented sixteenth-note pattern on his hi-hat, gradually building the intensity until the vocals enter. He uses buzzes, ruffs, and occasional hi-hat openings during the groove to help subtly shape his beats around the vocal lines, which helps make his part breathe. He punctuates all the section changes with very tasty fills. Chops are required." -drummagazine.com
