An acciaccatura is much sharper, and the grace note is performed closer to the primary note.

An appogiatura is elongated, and there is breathing room between the grace note and the primary note.

As stated above, use an acciaccatura for rudimental music.

Usually a crossover.
that is also commonly interpreted as a hi mom :wink:
Theres a difference between a drummer and a percussionist, one randomly hits drums that he probably doesn't even own, and other knows how to read music... I'm both xD

What about a "V" over a note? I've seen Music were some notes have a V symbol. It's in the spot were a > or an ^ would be.

Dumb Question, but what does "^" Mean over a note? Is it implying higher sticking for each note?

That's usually used for shots. The word is marcato, and basically is basically like a higher pitch or slightly stronger note. it's hard to define because it can be used differently for different instruments and writing styles. But usually in snare drum, it's not only a shot, but probably a ping shot. There are other noteheads for ping shots too though, so again it is up to the writer's preference.

Hope that helped at least a little bit haha.

The X's are rims right? Also what is the difference between a rim click on the top of the line and a rim click on the bottom of the line? Sorry I couldn't make the music upright :lol:

It looks like a stock part, and those are often written by people who don't really know what they're doing. Since I see "of ride" I assume one of them is supposed to be played on a cymbal. Remember that notation isn't universal, sometimes you have to make inferences. It's possible that neither of those x's are supposed to be on the rim. So if the music says something like "blah blah bell of ride" then play on the ride. If there's anything you're not sure about, make the best guess you can or listen to a recording if that's possible.

And I'm going to go ahead and guess that this is Jay Dawson's arrangement of Land of Make Believe, in which case I'm pretty sure the top x's are for playing on a cymbal.

You guessed it :D I found out that the all of the x's are supposedly on the ride except the accented ones which the music says is on the bell of the ride. If anyone has played this or knows the difference between the top and bottom x's could you please explain? Thanks for the help :D

Could top and bottom refer to right and left hand?

By the way, I have no experience in concert percussion.

I'm not familiar with Sib 6. Look for House Style settings. In there somewhere.

Does anyone know what this means? I've seen it mostly in bass music but also in snare sometimes.

In bass music that is pretty much universally a unison hit (although there are other ways to notate it). I don't know about snare music. Probably composer's preference.

How would you go about arranging a piece written in 7/8 for battery? I think writing in 7/4 would be easiest, just combining two measures of 7/8 into each measure of 7/4.

Change the time signature to 7/8 and write away. What exactly are you asking? If you want to write in 7/8, write in 7/8.

Heh - forgot to mention an important point. I'm arranging it for indoor, and I'm not sure how marching in 7/8 would work.

I would assume you would march the way you count it. Like 1&2&3&a where on beats 1 and 2 you step normally, and on beat 3 its elongated to add in the eighth note. Hope this makes sense lol. :|

That's how we marched the 7/8 section is my high school show last year. I assume you could just march to the quarter note and be on the "and" counts every other bar depending on how comfortable the members are with doing that.
But either way I don't see why you wouldn't write the music in 7/8.

Hey I wanted to ask, I'm writing a solo with a section just on the rims. But I alternate parts of it with playing on the snare stand and playing on the side of the rim, such as the spot were Drew Guy hits when he'd do the tap-off to paradiddle flow. Are there any known notations for those two spots? Or would it make more sense to keep it all the same notation as the rim and write "play on snare stand", etc?

If it's your solo, notate it however you'd like. There is no rule to what notehead to use when.

How do you play the tenuto markings in snare music? And what's difference between the technique/playing of tenuto, accent, and marcato?

I'm almost sure you got your answer by now somewhere..but

Tenuto - played as a "half accent" like as 6 inches instead of the full 9

Accents - 9 inch stroke

Marcato - a shot
