This song has to rank up there with one of the most challenging drum parts in a sub-three minute song. I still have no idea what Thomas Pridgen is playing - so I used what worked for my style. I don't claim to play it the same as Pridgen. For one, I'm using a double bass pedal in parts, which he does not use.

So I took a lot of liberties, all in the name of fun, and apologies to Thomas if he thinks that I butchered his style.

Thanks so much for watching, and thanks in advance for your feedback - it's always appreciated.
