The drummer in my cover band has 18 years under his belt and is musically pushing us harder with the song selections he nominates. I am relishing the challenge and don't mind him injecting more difficult songs in what we play. We are playing Rock N Roll by Led Zeppelin and despite asking for a simple 4 count into the song, the drummer is insisting on playing the drum intro. Which is fine but I can't for the life of me work out the count! The guitarist says everyone comes in on the "2 and", and the drummer says it starts "on the 3". When I listen to the recording, I can't count it quick enough to be certain where they are starting and I tend to come in at the wrong point, usually after the others For some reason, I keep losing the progression during the guitar solo too. It still sounds OK, but it sure is embarrassing and it doesn't do anyone any favours when I do it on the fretless If someone could break down the timing on the intro as far as the theory goes for me, I'd really appreciate it. I'm pretty sure the verse is 4/4, but I'm not certain the intro is. Seems such a simple song too, standard progression and all that. Not sure why I'm struggling with it!
