FLUTEY BIT

For this bit, it looks complicated but is pretty easy once you get your hands the right 
round. The bass drum plays at the same time as every other drum apart from the floor 
like this;

this tab is slightly off, really fun to play this way and sounds very similar, but i found different version of this and just searched through YouTube till i found something to help me figure out which was the correct way to play the hook.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5tO52l12F_8 this link gives brief glimpses of the drummer but at the right times to see what he is playing,
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSev-UFTrGo&feature=related this is a better view of almost the same, this guy just adds in the foot pedal. this is a class alternative though, so i'd say leave it in their to give people a choice, or to mess around with the two of them, and keep up the good work.
