Drums Grade 8 features:
- Pages 23-28
Some Skunk Funk- Click backing track audio has been fixed so that it correctly mirrors the time changes throughout the score (Updated 3 December 2019). How do I download the updated audio?
- Pages 29-34
Nosso Samba- Adjustments have been made to bars 74, 76, 78, 80 and 82 (the hi-hat now drops out to allow for the snare). See file: RSK051227_Drums_G8_p32_10Nov2015.pdf in the _Errata folder of the downloadable content. (Updated 10 November 2015)
How do I download the updated audio?
- Pages 5-10
Meet Darth Ear- In beat 2 of bar 14 (p.6), the snare and bass drum rhythm should be an eighth-note snare followed by an eighth-note bass drum. The double bass drum version of this tune (the "alt" version in the downloadable material) is unaffected. (Updated 3 March 2016)
