Mitch can do a mean solo JiggyJay
This song goes from slow to moderate to insane.
The opening is just two kicks and four hi-hit hits. Nothing really that fun and/or interesting, but right before you lose interest Mitch starts hitting his Ride and Snare, with some interesting fills inbetween.
Now that you are starting to love the song, Mitchell goes back to two kicks four hi-hats. But don't lose hope, because he goes back to the pattern you saw earlier, with the ride/snare fills after what feels like 30 or so seconds. He continues this while Jimi solos.
Then, the drum solo. This solo kicked my ass HARD. It is a very fast, long drum roll with pauses and build-ups inbetween.
The rest of the song is very fun, full of great fills and rolls, and some fun to hit patterns.
As I said before, song goes from boring to fun to crazy and back to fun. If you are a dedicated drummer who loves a challenge, get it. If you are a casual drummer, I'm guessing you won't like it since the solo will kill you most every time.

"This guy is crazy" HGinCT14
Before I start getting hated on by every single Mitch Mitchell fan, hear me out. reviews are supposed to show every color of the song for people of all different skill levels to consider. if a beginner sees Gold Stars next to If 6 Was 9, he'll feel gypped after buying it and never being able to pass it.

If 6 was 9 has a few flaws but not enough to warrant passing it over. For a lot of the song, the drummer isn't doing much, I'll say that now. during the solos and chorus, the drums get a little more interesting. and onto the drum solo. quite possibly one of the hardest solos to date, it is not for the weak at heart. If 6 was 9 was designed for the supreme hardcore, casual to moderate players beware
