Difficulty Level: Intermediate Genre: Classic Rock, Soul

In this 1966 Sam and Dave soul hit, drummer Al Jackson plays a mean backbeat, back in the days when backbeats were honest. He just whacked the heck out of the snare drum, and that’s what you heard on the record. Jackson was born in Memphis, and started playing drums on stage when he was five. Guitarist Steve Cropper has said, “Al contributed a bunch to the way things turned out.” “Hold On I’m Comin'” went to #22 in 1966.
