0:07	Intro	ABAA 		intro played with loose HH
0:21	Verse	ABAA		
0:34	Verse	ABAA*		* = Leave out last HH hit in last bar
0:47	Chorus	C x8		crash on beat 1 into chorus
1:13	Verse	ABAA
1:26	Verse	ABAA*
1:39	Chorus	C x8		crash on beat 1 into chorus
2:05	Bridge	DEAA*
2:18	Chorus	C x8		crash on beat 1 into chorus
2:44	Outro	FFGG    	accented tom hits in last bar to finish


Slow ¼ note tempo but a crazy hand to hand 32nd note pattern here, which is pretty challenging.
The key is keeping the variation in dynamic between the left and right hand over beat 2 and 3 of verse
patterns A,B and D. Practice REAL slow at first to get the dynamic right before you try to speed it up. 
Nice change of feel into the chorus. Tricky upbeat HH openings in the outro. Not yet sure if I have the
tom pattern right.
Live he plays crashes all over the place in final chorus and outro....will try to work them out!

Worth practising with a metronome before you try playing along to the song!
Please note that this can be counted either as a single bar pattern of 32nd notes OR a 2 bar pattern of
16th notes (as indicated)......up to you.....Enjoy!!....very satisfying when you finally crack
it!!.......don't give up on it!
