California has been the inspiration for many songs over the years: “California, Here I Come,” “California Girls,” “Surfing USA,” and “California Dreaming.” This latest entry offers a more cynical lyrical view, a big leap from “Surf City.” Chad Smith drums on this 2010 hit. (Note: this chart has many ghost notes, and they are indicated by small noteheads).

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 have been using the Classic Rock Drum Charts collection for many years. There is nothing better to practice and rehearse to, than these charts transcribed by James Morton.Michael Sheahan
