The Strokes - "Is This It"

This song is a great way for beginning students to start applying beats and fills in the context of a song. The chart is written out note for note, so you can read your way through until you start to memorize the song structure. Keep an eye out for section repeats, as well as the right hand moving between the hi-hats and the ride cymbal.

Tip: Practice the chart on it's own, slowly with no music, until you're comfortable with the material. 

Tip: Listen to the song quite a bit outside of your practicing. If you know the song by heart, it will be much easier to play, and eventually you won't even need the chart!
