Cocaine (2) (By ERIC CLAPTON)
 
COCAINE
By Eric Clapton

This song works really good if played with one bass, one singer/lead guitar,
one second guitar, and one person on the drum set.  The music for the set is
really easy... I don't have it notated or anything, but I think it's eighth
notes on the weak beats played on the hi-hat, and quarters on the strong beats
played on snare and bass.  The bass line is really easy and repetitive.  The verses
work really well if you have the lead guitar playing the EEDEED riff while singing,
and the second guitar plays it an octave higher, alternating between the riff and
runs in C.
