Most drummers have tried to play System of a Down’s “Chop Suey” at some point. While it has some tricky parts, any drummer can play the song – even a beginner! In this video, Dave will show you five levels of Chop Suey, starting from a simplified version and ending with how John Dolmayan actually plays it.
If you already know how to play the song, you’ll be able to find out which level you’re at!
Even if you can’t identify what level you’re at, hopefully this is encouraging if you’re a beginner. You can still have fun and get through the song at any level!
