Dark Necessities – Red Hot Chili Peppers – BeatSteve Ley
"Dark Necessities" is the first single on Red Hot Chili Pepper's 11th studio album, The Getaway (2016). The song became the band's 13th number-one single on the Billboard 'Alternative Songs' chart, setting a new record.
The primary beat in the song features a rapid 16th note pattern on the hi-hat, played with the right hand. Be sure to use a down/up or push/pull technique to achieve the right feel.
Flea’s slap-bass riffs are supported by the syncopated bass drum pattern and the resolving snare pop on beat 2 of each measure.
