I Ran (So Far Away)
By Flock of Seagulls
This song is a great example of 80’s music
Hh = high hat x = closed o = open
C = crash
Bd = bass drum
Sd= snare drum
T1 = tom 1
Note: I think the crash notes are actually
done on a splash cymbal, but since the average
drumset probably doesn’t have one, it will do.
Little intro thing (nobody else plays)
Verse/Chorus/Guitar solo (repeat a lot, listen
to the song to get it perfect. When you are playing
it will be easy to follow along to the guitars.
Just before the singer say “…I couldn’t get away”
It is hard to illustrate the beat with tabs so listen
to the song and you will figure it out.
Bridge (this is the only part that is any different
from the rest of the song)
This is a tom roll and I’m not quite sure how long it is,
I tried to get it tabbed right but it could be wrong. Again,
if you listen you’ll get it right.
And that’s it. This song requires no skill at all to play
and no skill is what the band had. That is why they are
remembered more for their haircuts than their music.
