Snares off create a tom-tom effect to start this fast, 2-beat swinger. Easy ranges and rhythms with mild syncopation help drive this one 'pedal to the metal.' Everyone is featured for four measures on a break chorus. If you cannot play this fast, slow it down. It sounds great at a moderate 4-beat tempo as well. (1:31).
