Hi guys, I just started charting drums... What a little peace of magic seeing the first parts I charted in the preview plugin!
Anyway I'm very used to playing pro drums, so when charting non pro drums for expert I'm having a little trouble figuring out what color pad should correspond to what sound.
From what I know these are the basics...
- red, (Snare Drum)
- yellow, (Hi-Hat)
- blue, (Tom-Tom)
- green (Crash Cymbols).
But lets say there is no Tom-Tom in a part but there is a hi-hat and a ride cymbal. Should I make the ride cymbal blue? Is there a general rule of thumb for this.
I did try searching first but couldn't find any info on this...
