About this deal

For the snare drum, the rim is usually hit at the point where it's furthest away from the drummer (i. If you don't have seven toms, you will have to substitute your t om 1 (or another tom) for the additional toms in the sheet music. However, sometimes it's important to reinforce to the reader that the hi-hat stroke needs to be played closed. The hi-hat splash is achieved by hitting the hi-hat cymbals together with the foot, and then quickly releasing them apart to let them ring out. A stroke played with the butt of the stick against the rim while the tip of the stick remains resting on the drum head.

Start the section with a slightly loose hi-hat, and gradually loosen the hi-hat tension for all of the strokes under the dotted line. In the master drum key, they are identified as tom 1, tom 2, floor tom 1 and floor tom 2 (see below). The tip of the stick strikes the drum head, generally just off-center, and the shaft of the stick strikes the rim. This master drum key isn't exhaustive, meaning that we didn't include every possible notation that you might encounter.In the graphic above, the "Buzz roll/Closed roll (written out)" shows all of the strokes written out in 16th-note notation (with buzzes).

Hybrid combinations where a drummer is using both acoustic drums and electronic drums are also becoming common. A square note head indicates that this drum is supposed to be played on an electronic drum (or pad). Relaxed: Play the hi-hat with a 'relaxed' tension, allowing the hi-hat cymbals to reverberate slightly.
