The Zappa catalogue contains so many great songs and countless great drum performances. I decided to do a drum project for whatever songs I encounter that I love. If anyone wants to add instruments great but as far my efforts drums will be the priority. Songs in blue will be primarily handled by nsw1-6. Songs in red indicate progress with tempo mapping or any instruments added.

 

Stay tuned freaks......

I'll contribute some songs to this project, since I have much Zappa stuff lying around from past charts.

Holiday In Berlin, Full Blown

Penguin In Bondage / Pygmy Twylyte

Cheepnis

Be-Bop Tango (of the Old Jazzmen's Church) (Edited cleanly for most of the musical sections)

Don't Eat That Yellow Snow Suite (Don't Eat.. / Nanook Rubs It / St. Alfonso's Pancake Breakfast / Father O'Blivion) (Fixed from old chart)

Can't Afford No Shoes

San Ber'dino

Sofa No. 2

Just to let you know, I'm currently mapping the entirety of Joe's Garage Act 1, with the intent of charting the vocals.

You're welcome to add it to this project, if you like.
