Print This Drum Beat

The instantly recognizable drum intro for the 20th Century Fox fanfare has been psyching-up movie-goers since the 1930s.

The above notation represents the two-measure snare and bass drum intro. The notes with a ‘Z’ on the stem should be played with buzzed, alternating sixteenth-notes to create a smooth, closed roll.

Below, each buzz-stroke and the sticking has been included.
