Elton John Band - 'The Wasteland' from the Songs from the West Coast Album.
I really like this song - has a really strong, driving bass line and good
bluesy roots. Excellent bit of drumming from Nigel on this track too :)
Each bar works on the basis of - 'quaver-crotchet', 'quaver-crotchet',
'quaver-crotchet', 'quaver-crotchet', with the accent leaning heavily on the
crotchet. Here I have either written all four pairs of notes as the 4 roots,
or just one note to be carried through the bar. ENJOY!!!   

Ps....I can't tell you what to shout before the track starts....only 
something along the lines of...
A moment? We might just begin? Right about..
ONE!
ONE!!
TWO!
TWO!!
ONE TWO A Hundred and...
OH MY GOD!!!!
