Ocean Avenue – Yellowcard – VerseSteve Ley
Punk-poppers, Yellowcard, broke into the mainstream a little over a decade ago with their hit-single, Ocean Avenue. The above excerpt includes the intro and the beginning of the first verse. The rhythm of the guitar part is notated with cue notes to help the drummer follow the riff and come in strongly on beat 4 of the third measure. The drum pattern heard throughout the verse closely follows the guitar riff.
