You're right! But I've searched the Web and found no tab for this specific song (I want one coz I guess it would help me, apart from the fact I will practice over the actual song...)In my opinion drum TABS are actually awful i cant stand them i would muccch rather try to actually read it in real notation. but a google search should easily give you a bunch of tab sites.
I had good experiences with tabs, but it's true that it's better to try over the actual song.I don't agree with drum tabs either, they're a waste of time. Tabs in general do a terrible job defining rhythms. The reason they work with guitar is that they will tell you what notes to play - well, not the actual note values but rather where the notes are placed on the fretboard - and from there it's pretty much up to you to figure out the strumming/picking rhythms. Is the gap in the page a whole note or quarter note rest? Who knows...
You're better off just listening to the tune and trying to lift it for yourself.
It's very simple. Although it doesn't have the actual tab itself, you can isolate the drum track and slow it down to hear how the fills and beats and stuff are done.I dont understand how guitarpro can help with drum tabs? Also how can you hate drum tabs? Not everyone has the ability to figure a song out in 3-4 takes not to mention the time it takes too learn it, so if you can glance at a tab and get a general idea of the beat and time whats the big deal?
How exactly does tuxguitar help you with drumming?
If a general idea is sufficient, why refer to a tab or transcribe parts at all? If a song is worth doing to the extent that knowing the part is important, I don't think a general idea is very helpful. That's like saying the part is "good enough". To me, that's just laziness.so if you can glance at a tab and get a general idea of the beat and time whats the big deal?
I understand, and I did say "nobody is required to dissect drum parts like I am." Certainly for a track like "In Your Eyes" it wouldn't be a day-long process anyway. Be aware with that (and many songs) of the amount of non-kit percussion that contributes to the song. Determining which of those parts you can play in addition to playing the kit is what would take some extra time.For me being a weekend warrior and this not being my career I do not have 8+ hours a day to spend on learning songs so if I can look at a tab and get the general idea of the beat and maybe a few fills then it works great for me.
I think you're being generous... 99% is probably more like it for tabs posted on the web, which I believe are all homemade (I've never seen commercial tabs for drums.) Even commercial notation isn't completely correct, except possibly if the actual drummer wrote the part.I have gone over many tabs and find mistakes in about 70% of them whether it be missing parts or just plain wrong so in that case you are still learning.
