Spill Canvas - This Is For Keeps drum

The Spill Canvas
This is for Keeps
Timing: 4/4

Notes: It appears (in what stingy live videos I could find) that the drummer has one Ride, one Crash, one
Small Tom, and two Floor Toms (and obviously one Snare Drum and one Bass Drum). It is just as easy to
play
the higher Floor Tom part on a Large Tom, but for accuracy sake I will tab it out as two Floor Toms.
Also,
there is a shaker in the album version, but it is just as easy and useful to use the High Hat with your
foot on the counts of 1, 2, 3, 4. I will tab out both so there is no confusion.
I'm tabbing this song out because it is one of my girlfriend's favorite songs and I would like to
surprise
her by learning it and spontaneously playing it for her. Therefore, leave a comment if you see a mistake
because the accuracy of this tab (as it always is) is more important than sparing a bruised ego and a
little online embarrassment. :)

P.S. Sorry for rambling... and sorry for submitting it three times, I shouldn't tab stuff at 2 AM in the
morning, I guess...
