How to Write a Fast and Easy Drum Chart teaches an innovative and simple approach to drum chart writing that takes almost no time to learn. Designed for drummers, composers, and students who need drum charts for the various songs they encounter, this method won’t require you to turn multiple pages and read bar after bar of music. Instead, you will see the full form of a song on one piece of paper and only need to write a few measures of drum notation to keep yourself in the groove. Charting a song will help you play with greater accuracy, ensuring that you play the song correctly the first time and every time. By being able to easily and accurately play songs right away, you’ll make your life easier and land more gigs. The accompanying CD includes demonstrations of the examples in the book.
