“The Long Run”

This month’s Rock Chart features “The Long Run” by the Eagles. Drummer/co-writer Don Henley lays the heat down with a straight, unhurried feel, and his playing reflects both economy and creativity. All the fills are played on the snare, yet there is no sense of a loss of tonal color. Note the pickup figure at the beginning and before each verse tone measure before letters D & F). Another drummer might be tempted to fill in the empty downbeat, but in this case, the silence is most effective.
