This song spent a whole year on the British Top 40, and won Song Of The Year for 2016. The drumming here is actually a little deceptive: on first hearing, it comes across as your standard eighth note hi-hat pattern. However, there is an interesting interplay between the ride cymbal and the hi-hat pedaled with the left foot. Give it a try!

I have been using the Classic Rock Drum Charts collection for many years. There is nothing better to practice and rehearse to, than these charts transcribed by James Morton.Michael Sheahan
