Drum Charts & Transcriptions

I hope you find these transcriptions useful. I believe transcribing is crucial to your development as a musician. I mentioned transcribing in THIS article

I have included a blank page for you to print and get started on your own. All you need is a decent set of headphones, your ears and some music theory know how! If you are really stuck with how to get going get in touch with me.
I have 100’s if not 1000’s of handwritten charts and transcriptions, but am going to chip away at putting them into Sibelius for ease of use for students.

* I write my Transcriptions for 2 Toms, and 1 crash.
* For ‘Transcriptions‘ i try to keep things as close as possible to the recordings.
* For ‘Charts‘ i do a general road map and leave out some details for an easier sight read. Charts are also closer to what you’ll encounter on a reading gig.

Enjoy!
