I Ran (So Far Away) By Flock of Seagulls This song is a great example of 80’s music Hh = high hat x = closed o = open C = crash Bd = bass drum Sd= snare drum T1 = tom 1 Note: I think the crash notes are actually done on a splash cymbal, but since the average drumset probably doesn’t have one, it will do. Little intro thing (nobody else plays) C-----x---- Let ring Verse/Chorus/Guitar solo (repeat a lot, listen to the song to get it perfect. When you are playing it will be easy to follow along to the guitars. Hh ---x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x- Sd ----------x---------x--------x- Bd ------b---------b--------b----- Just before the singer say “…I couldn’t get away” play Sd –x-x—xx- It is hard to illustrate the beat with tabs so listen to the song and you will figure it out. Bridge (this is the only part that is any different from the rest of the song) T1 –xxxxxxxxxxxx- This is a tom roll and I’m not quite sure how long it is, I tried to get it tabbed right but it could be wrong. Again, if you listen you’ll get it right. And that’s it. This song requires no skill at all to play and no skill is what the band had. That is why they are remembered more for their haircuts than their music.
