Paul Snooke (AUS) - August 2017
Beautiful Drug - Zac Brown Band : (Album: Jekyll + Hyde)
Notes: anti-clockwise dance
The dance will start 32 counts after the first beat of the song when the vocals start. This is rather difficult to get the right count as there is not a real beat in the intro of the song. Another way to determine the starting count is 16 counts from the guitar beat that starts midway in the intro.
