Reading music, applying notes, counting odd times, it all escapes me. I had a good solid handle on reading music back in my high school days, but as for being able to play sheet music or write my own charts, out of the question.

I recently downloaded MuseScore 2, in hopes of slowly getting back into it again, but it's a lost cause.

I like the kick beat on this, with the added beat thrown in every??? Whenever you throw it in.

I'm envious of you for possessing the know-how to work with charts and write your own music.

Well I was going to say I can't read drum music either but I'll be damned-I think I can read this music-watching your video and then remembering what I learned playing with an orchestra the chart makes sense. The X on top line is hihat ,the bottom space note is bass, and third line note is snare. The crash has the line through the x and ride is x on first line. I could never sight read it-but at least I think I could figure it out to play-Thanks Tony. The toms fall on spaces hi to low??

Toms are written between bass and snare, the fill at the bottom can be played any way,take chances!

Good stuff. This may be an issue of nomenclature, but this seems like more of a transcription than a chart. I use charts as a type of cheat sheet when playing to songs I'm not too familiar with ie feel of the song, beats on the verse/chorus, key fills, etc. I would have trouble with reliably following along with that chart on the gig. Maybe I need to brush up on my sight reading.

Thanks for this , Toni. This reading business is my weak spot.: always wanted to be able to read and play but never happened. Something about my eyes blurring when I see a whole sheet of music! I like to do the reading by isolating a measure at a time. Is there a site where you can click on one measure and hear it played?

I think writing the bass drum notes upside down makes it easier to read.

This is a great site for such. Have a look-see. It's somewhat complicated to learn and navigate, but anything is possible with it.
