How to Read Drum Notation – Part 5 – Rests

In the last lesson we learnt about different note lengths. Every single one of those notes, has a corresponding rest (a rest means you play nothing for that period of time)

SEMI-BREVE REST (Whole Note Rest)

MINUM REST (Half Note Rest)

CROTCHET REST (Quarter Note Rest)

QUAVER REST (Eighth Note Rest)

SEMI-QUAVER REST (Sixteenth Note Rest)
