  • Break score

    hi

    just joined this board looks good! i've been looking for drum transcriptions of classic drum breaks. Can't seem to find them anywhere. I have johnny rabb's book, which has amen break.

    Is there a good web source for this sort of thing?

    cheers

    Surely if you can read drum music (for want of a better term) than you can just listen to the break and write it yourself? Or am I totally worng on that assumption?

      Probably a lot easier said than done.
      Enthusiastic vagueness passes for scholarship in the twilight world of the disc-jockey.

        pick up back issues of Modern Drummer (USA) and Rhythm (UK) drum magazines. they include scores for breaks. a couple of months back Rhythm had a Cissy Strut score, and prior to that, a Funky Drummer score.

        i'm not aware of any specific sites or mags that cover hip hop breaks in drum notation but all the mainstream titles carry scores for quality breaks at one time or another.

          Actually, yeah - that must be a bloody labourious thing to do... Would following a breakdown by sheet music totally remove the 'soul' of the piece in question? And kind of completely miss the point?

            thanks, yeah i could transcribe them but y'know that would take a while ...if i did would it be legal to hve them on a website? reading music doesn't mean you lose the soul, a score is just a handy way to jog your memory (particularly mine&#33

            gonna take a look at rhythm magazine, cheers for that!
