so i got me my first drum set yesterday and so far so good but i got stuck tryin to read the music.. i understand the music with all quarter notes just fine but i just came across an exercise in 2/4 time where the bass drum has a half note under the first beat and the snare has a quarter note under the second beat. does the half note mean i would hit the bass for each beat that measure?
err, if your in 2/4 and the bass drum has only got half notes then that'd mean you'd hit the bass drum each measure
then bass on the first beat, snare on the second beat and thats it? lol god i hate music. ill take ur word for it tho
