Description & Sample

Tico Torres blends driving ride bell quarters with crash accents throughout the intro, choruses and outro — a great example of using the crash cymbal to embellish the song. Basic 8th note patterns, open-hat embellishments and simple but important drum fills are played throughout the verses and pre-choruses. Torres’ drum part is a great piece for beginner or intermediate level players who’d like to develop dexterity and creative techniques.

You Give Love a Bad Name peaked at #1 in the US Billboard Hot 100 and within the top 40 internationally between 1986 and 1987, landing this song’s place as an 80s classic.
