Heart – Barracuda

A song named after a fish? Really?? Oh yes!

Before writing massive power ballads (Alone and These Dreams), the Wilson sisters wrote some absolutely blooming marvellous rock tunes!

This one, released in 1977, is one of the most popular ones. With alternating time signatures, fast kick patterns and some awesome syncopated fills, this part is one that is so satisfying to play. Take time to make sure the 5/4 sections are smooth as they’ll mess with the flow if not.

And lets not forget those lovely 3/4 sections, put in there just to trip people up…. Yep, I’m talking to YOU! 😉

As always, take your time and enjoy the process of learning!
