When learning or writing a chart for a new tune. One of the first things I do is write down the number of bars/measures for each section.
I've noticed that sometimes you can count a tune in different ways.

For instance the Lizzy tune below, I initially counted it as each snare drum hit as quarter notes. Feels a bit slow that way.
I'm wondering should I count the 8th notes as quarters which would make counting twice as fast.
Any tips for counting in the right note rate much appreciated.


Also the stop at the 24 second mark. Tricky to count that. Wonder did the band just feel it
