Frequently Asked Questions
How is a drum set transcription different
than a drum chart?
Very often "transcription" and "chart" are used interchangeably. Formally speaking, a "chart"
is a more general drum part, while a "transcription"is very
detail-oriented. Unless noted, I focus on the full-detail transcriptions.
Do I have to learn the entire transcription to play the song?
Absolutely not. Transcriptions
are typically more for studying the specific phrasings or vocabulary a
Do you have any 'drum tab' versions of your charts?
No, and while drum tabs are a valid way for a drummer to get going on reading, if you spend a short time learning to read formal notation just the same, you will discover formal notation is actually easier to read...and write!
Do you have any videos that scroll the notation along with the song?
I do not.

WHERE IS MY ORDER?
Orders are delivered 0-6 hours
(usually right away) after confirmation of purchase
where you'll receive an email from JKDS with a download
link. However if you do NOT receive your order by
this time, please do the following before contacting me:
(a) Check your email spam folder.
This is where it is almost every time an order is not received. If you
are using an email client, please also check the spam folder on your email
web server interface.
If your download email
was sent there, consider adding
to your address book to avoid it being sent therein the future.
(b) Make sure the email address on your PayPal account is still
current. I can't email you your download
link if I don't have the correct email address. When an email gets
returned to me, I'll cancel/refund the order with a note that your email
is not working.
For those in Australia or Southeast Asia time zones...I
may be asleep when you order!
Please be a little patient - just keep in mind the time zone
difference. You will always get your order!
PLEASE check your email spam
folder. This is where it is almost every time
an order is not received. If you use an email client software
(Outlook, Thunderbird) and if not there please/perhaps try checking
the spam folder on the webserver as sometimes messages in spam on
the web server do not get drawn to email client softwares.
In either case, please consider adding john (at) jkdrumsolutions
(dot) com to your address book.
Email with any questions or problems with download issues or about the transcriptions!
