Drum Notations--How is the Snare Drum Notated?

by Ed

I so confused. I bought two books on drum notations. One book shows the snare on the third line from the bottom and the other book shows the snare on the third space from the bottom.Could you please tell me which one is correct? Thank you. Ed


Hi, Ed--

The snare drum is normally located on the 3rd space. Some books may have different notations.

By the way, have you checked out our Almost Free Drum Tabs?

These are quality drum tab presented in traditional notation. They are guaranteed accurate and easy to read.

You can even order custom made drum tabs for ANY song!
