|||||The Band - I Shall Be Released||]|
To get the snare drum sound you hear on The Band's I Shall Be Released (Music From Big Pink), Levon Helm turned the drum upside down and dragged his finger across the snares. He did this because the band felt that the sound of hitting the drum, even with a brush, was too harsh for the song.
