About Our Charts

WHAT IS AND EASY DRUM CHART?

It is a accurate and simple drum music that focuses on the form of the song rather than bar after bar of music notation. This will allow all drummers to know exactly where they are in the song, play the time patterns and fills in the right places and still be able to keep focused on the groove of the song.

IS THERE A LOT OF NOTATION TO READ?

No, most patterns are one or two bars in length written clearly

WHAT IF I DON'T READ NOTATION?

Only a basic knowledge of notation is required. For the easy basic charts you would have to know what a quarter note and eight note is only. If you buy a chart of a song you already have on CD, you probably will have no trouble understand the simple notation written on the chart. You might even find out that you can read music.note: The book covers the basic drum patterns to help you understand simple drum patterns and what they look like. READ MORE ABOUT THE BOOK
