About The Tab

If funky drum beats are your thing the you are going to LOVE this drum tab! Errico makes use of a basic 16th note funk groove generously peppered with lots of Snare Drum ghost notes and 32nd not triplets between the Bass and the Snare.

In fact, when you first listen to the song, it may seem that the ghost notes and the Snare are Hi Hat notes. A very careful listening will reveal them to be very light Snare hits.

Later in the song, he makes great use of open Hi Hat notes that give the beat an even more funky feel.

This song will be challenging to play. After all, Errico is one of the great drummers. If you are up to the challenge, this will be great fun to play and educational as well. We can become great drummers by playing what the great drummers play!
