4/4, Key of A
This is a basic song made particularly cool by FZ's subtle use of time
signature changes. When you listen to the song they don't jump out at you
but they make the difference between an average tune and one that's got
something about it. The changes are in the verse so I put the time under
each bar to keep things straight. Play the odd eighth bars with steady
eighth note strums to accent the shifting time. They should all be steady
but just an unusual number of strums.
