Sting – Love Is Stronger Than Justice (Drum Sheet Music)

Love Is Stronger Than Justice (The Munificent Seven) is the second track of the album Ten Summoner’s Tales (1993) by Sting, with the great Vinnie Colaiuta on drums. The interesting stuff of the song are the two different time signatures during the verse/intro and the chorus section.

The Verse/Intro groove is in 7/8, the snare is played on the third and the seventh eight note, the bass drum part changes during the intro and the verse; on the verse is played on the one, the and of four and six. “Saint Augustine in Hell” from the same album have a similar groove (but with a difference regarding the cymbal pattern).

During the Chorus Vinnie Colaiuta plays a very light shuffle in 4/4, that gives at the song a country vibe.
