Better Now – Sterr

You know that feeling you get when you hear a band for the first time and you think “Wow, that’s amazing. I wish I’d written that!”? Sterr were one of those bands for me. I first heard this track as a play along on a website and went straight out and brought the album from iTunes.

After listening to it several times, I thought it would be fun to write a song out for students to play and generally enjoy…… and the students that have tackled this have really enjoyed it!

The chart is not without challenges. The grooves used are intense and form the backbone of the song, driving it relentlessly forward. The fills are perfectly placed and over the top but without taking anything away from the song, rather like Phil Collins’ drum parts.

All in all, a great little chart and a lot of fun to play.
