JKDS Drum Key

   Most of the advanced transcriptions and some of the basic/intermediate level titles I offer include a drum key but if not, below is the traditional notation standard I use in my drum transcriptions. For rare instrumentation I will include additional drum keys in the transcription itself, particularly for percussion. Notations are based on relative heights, not on what notation software programmers have inappropriately set as default over the last few years! If you have any questions, comments or issues with understanding or reading the drum key, please contact me at john (at) jkdrumsolutions (dot) com!
