Drum Charts and Transcriptions

Transcriptions are crucial to your growth as a musician.

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.

If you find value in these transcriptions please consider a donation! PATREON: https://www.patreon.com/NZDrummerPodcast

* 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.
