Quality Transcriptions You Can Count On
All the drum sheet music found on this page and throughout the site are full, note-for-note transcriptions transcribed by James Morton--long-time professional drummer, author of over a dozen books with Mel Bay Publications, and creator of the "Rock Charts" column formerly found in Modern Drummer--over the course of his 40+ year career.
I teach private drum lessons and play drums in many bands, so use of this collection of drum charts is very important. Each chart is well written for use by beginners as well as experts alike. And the wide cross section of songs is great. Keep them coming!Greg
