“Lowdown In The Street”
From the album Deguello (Warner Brothers HS-3361)
Since the late ’60s, ZZ Top has amassed a huge following, with their Texas-style blend of blues, boogie, and heavy metal. This power trio is featured here with “Lowdown In The Street,” a cut from one of their most popular albums, Deguello. Drummer Frank Beard employs an interesting two measure pattern throughout. Make sure the ruff grace notes lead directly into the bass drum. The fill figure, featured in the introduction, is recapitulated before the final verse (letter D).
