After seeing the Steve Smith instructional video, I decided to tab it out for those who prefer 
tabs. For those who don't know, this song is played open-handed, meaning the hi-hat is played 
with your non-dominant hand (left for righties, right for lefties).

Artist: Journey
Album: Escape (1981)
Song: Don't Stop Believin'
Tabbed by: guitardude45
Drummer: Steve Smith 

Tempo - Moderate (120)
