I simplified the arrangement to only a few parts and kept hands in what I call, “voice leading position.”

Your hands pretty much stay in the same position the entire song.

Part A 

4 Quarter notes right on the down beats.

Right hand on the center. Left hand on the rim.

Right. Left. Right. Left.

Part B

I’ve heard this rhythm be called a “Double Backbeat.”

Makes sense if you know what a back beat is.

Right hand Beat one.

Left hand plays ‘2 &’.

Right hand plays beat 3.

Then, on the last beat, Left hand plays beat 4 and right hand on the ‘& of 4.’

Part C

Left hand holds down the down beats for us on the rim while our right hand plays two up beats: on the ‘& of 3’ and the ‘& of 4.’

Hope you enjoy this!

As always, I love hearing from you.
