I personally feel like the DOP/OPB format is too constricting for a blues tune like this.

I took @persist’s v2 OPB and cut it up for a jammable version.

  • Intro - 1 bar intro fill
  • Part 1 - 4 bars of the main beat and bass line
    ** Fill 1 - Chorus - Trigger on the C or B of the last bar of verse
    ** Fill 2 - Chorus 2 - Trigger on the C or B of the last bar of verse
    ** Fill 3 - End of Lead break and double chorus - Trigger on C or B just before the F/G ending of the lead
  • Outro - 1 full main progression with and ending crash.

I also moved the snare from 40 (electric snare) to 38 (normal snare) because I personally dislike the electric snare tone on most kits.

This should work with any kit with the bass in the 0-31 slot.
