Default Call for "Call Me" Transcription

Anyone have a transcription of the Blondie classic they can share? (actual sheet music, not tab).

(Bermuda, nice work! That's you playing, right?)

On this song, it's pretty obvious that they overdubbed an additional hi-hat triplet part (it may even be a drum machine), so a transcription wouldn't really help you to play the song anyway. You've got to figure out how to play the groove and deliver those hi-hat lifts at the same time, and there's more than one way to do it:

1. Play a shuffle pattern on the hi-hat, and ignore the triplet hi-hat overdub part.

2. Play a two-handed triplet pattern on the hi-hat, leading with the right hand (the left hand will play the 2 and 4 on the snare).

3. Same as #3, but lead with the left. Transitions from groove to fill and back get trickier, but your right hand gets to play the snare backbeats.

4. Play a Purdie shuffle pattern.

5. Play only the 2nd and 3rd partials of each triplet with the right hand on the hi-hat. Quite challenging, and not very practical for the entire song.

6. Bring an extra hi-hat and stand, and have someone else play triplets while you bash away the rest of the groove as in #1.

Oh, cool! That track would've been very handy years ago.

Thanks, of course I know the tune. Just want the form and bar counts for a last minute gig.
