What Websites offer quality Drum Scores /Sheet Music (not Tabs)?
I'm not a Drummer, but I would highly recommend investing in a copy of Guitar Pro. Most of the songs I've downloaded for guitar pro have the transcribers really putting a ton of effort into transcriptions of songs.
It allows you to follow along, speed up, slow down, loop etc, and the Real Sound Engine means that the drums actually sound realistic. A quick search for [song name] Guitar pro pretty much always yields Success.
The software doesn't cost much, and once you have it sheet music is free everywhere (that I've found!)
Here's an example of what the drum scoring looks like
Like I say I'm not a Drummer, but I am interested in studying some real Percussion and Drum Sheet music. From Mike Portnoy to Brian Ferneyhough and of course Zappa!
Using this software, you'll be able to open a lot of tabs from the Internet (more or less accurate), you can find them on a lot of websites, like on Ultimate-Guitar.
If you don't want to buy a software, you can check out Songsterr, which is more or less an online Guitar Pro player, the tabs they use are from Internet, so they are not always accurate, but it's often a good start.
Arobas Music, the editor of GP, also have a website where they sell accurate tabs (they are not as accurate as they claim, but they're pretty good) : MySongBook, but today there are not a lot of songs.
I play in two bands and we continualy struggle to get sheet music for drums that is acurate and technicaly correct. Agree Guitar Pro is awsome but expensive and some (not many) of the sheets are badly put together for drums. Our sucsesses have been from two sources Amazon in the sheet music section but can be expensive most books only give 8 or 9 sheets and you probably only need 2 or 3. The other area is Drumscore.com we have had great experiences here and the guy who owns it has been vey helpful to our drummers and offers great advice.
