Sex On Fire by the Kings of Leon — has a strange kind of intro. I’ve seen many bands struggle with this one, so here is my super simple solution to this little problem.
The point of this video, other than to teach you an easy way for starting Sex On Fire, is to show how sometimes thinking a little differently about the rhythm can offer us a different perspective. And in this case, a much simpler one.
- Don’t fight your natural urge (if you have one) to place the 1 count at the start of the riff
- Make the adjustment (the extra 1 count) where it’s easiest and don’t worry about the “proper way” to do things
