Understanding drum notation
I am trying to understand the drum notation as written in some scores.
I have become familier with the 5 line drum set, and the drums used are based on their position on the lines, my problem is when there is only a single line drum set.
As in the image, 2 voices are indicated, one above the line and one below.
The upper drum line is indicated at the beginning of the score to be brushes on snare, no problem there, other percussion used on this line is also indicated, eg, cymbals.
This lower drum line is not indicated, but would I be correct in assuming that this is a bass drum line?
