0:13 Tam: |------------x---|       If you play tam with right hand, probably leave out HH ghost 
     HH:  |xgxgxgxgxgxgxgxg|       notes just before and after tam hit.
     Sn:  |----O-----------|

The ghost 16th notes can be left out of the HH pattern....it still sounds fine as just straight 8th notes
as for the ride pattern (and is a lot simpler).


Great song, fantastic drummer. Quite long and repetitive but good timing practice maintaining a rocksteady
slow tempo groove for nearly 5 mins. A good song to choose if you are just embarking on playing whole
songs
(just leave out the ghost notes). Have fun with it!

I will just include here some of the different ways you can play the main groove:

           RRRRRRRRRRR R RR     
               L
     Tam: |------------x---|

     Sn:  |----O-----------|
     B:   |o-o----oo-------|
           1e+a2e+a3e+a4e+a


           RRRRRRRRRRRRLRRR                  RRRRRRRRRRR-L-RR     
               L                                 L
     Tam: |------------x---|    or     Tam: |------------x---|
     HH:  |xgxgxgxgxgxg-gxg|           HH:  |xgxgxgxgxgx---xg|
     Sn:  |----O-----------|           Sn:  |----O-----------|
     B:   |o-o----oo-------|           B:   |o-o----oo-------|
           1e+a2e+a3e+a4e+a                  1e+a2e+a3e+a4e+a
