Re: drum transcriptions and copyright, what's the legal status?

All this talk made me try to figure things out looking at the actual law, for example here in Canada

Re: drum transcriptions and copyright, what's the legal status?

thanks for the articles, sometimes it does seem that lyrics and melody are first class citizens while everything else is treated as very secondary, it's strange to me as so many songs would be so...

Re: drum transcriptions and copyright, what's the legal status?

given enough toms you can play clear melodies on a drumset too :)

And looking at things from the opposite way, I mean, you can copyright the melody of "one note samba" can't you? I don't see a...

Re: drum transcriptions and copyright, what's the legal status?

that is pretty much what I was wondering as well, it seems strange that I could transcribe a song and put it up somewhere without any sort of licensing or other agreement, I am sure that Hal Leonard...

Re: drum transcriptions and copyright, what's the legal status?

on the other hand I am pretty sure that if I took Terry Bozzio's kit and played "Happy Birthday" on its toms I would be liable for infringement: where do you draw the line between rhythm and melody?...

Re: drum transcriptions and copyright, what's the legal status?

how would that apply to big band scores and/or other music with "composed" written-out drum parts?

What about exercise books where, say, drummer xyz has come up with an exercise and they play it,...

drum transcriptions and copyright, what's the legal status?

I have been thinking about putting some transcriptions online for other people's benefits (for free of course, and my own work of course), and I have been trying to figure out if it's legal to do so...

Re: Groove Essentials 34 fast medium samba, need woodshedding ideas for the RH

you are explaining this a lot better than I did, and yes, it's a personal pride kind of thing, if I had to play a fast samba in a gig I'd likely be playing something else than straight 16ths :)

I...

Re: Groove Essentials 34 fast medium samba, need woodshedding ideas for the RH

this, basically I am trying to find ideas to bring up my straight 16ths right hand speed up from the mid 90s where it's right now. I guess this is one of those "personal goal" kind of things, if I...

Groove Essentials 34 fast medium samba, need woodshedding ideas for the RH

I have been trying to speed up my RH for the past several months but I am hitting a wall at around "Twisting by the pool" by Dire Straits speed, which is around 93/94bpm while a few songs I'd like to...

Re: Dave Letterman's Drum Solo Week

I am always amazed at how much Neil's kit shakes while he's playing, especially the cymbals. Nice solo, very enjoyable, can't wait to see him live in a little while on the tour!

Re: The TRUTH about drum triggers

how long do people practice to get their doubles (on the snare) to sound even?

As much as "you have to be able to play all the notes for them to sound" with triggers, it seems to me it'd be quite...

Re: fastest non-triggered double bass

honestly this doesn't seem that hard to do from a technical perspective:

- have a computer with a live audio in (obvious)
