My First Drum Tab

Hello, all. I’m really happy to post my first ever drum tab. I was looking for some song which had relatively simple drums, so I could practise it with my new kit. I liked Jon Osbourne’s ‘One of Us’ but initially couldn’t find its drum tab online. So I started writing the notes myself. Then I just looked up online again and saw that they were there, so I discontinued that. Then I liked Prithibi by Lakkhichhara, and I was almost sure the tabs won’t be on the net. I even asked their drummer if he could tell me where I might find the drum tabs to this song. He said the tabs don’t exist like that. I looked up the net anyway, just to be sure. When I saw there wasn’t any such thing, I sat down to write the tabs myself yada yada yada.

Anyway, so here is my first ever drum tab, that of Prithibi by Lakkhichhara, the song that inspired Bheegi Bheegi of Gangster and one of my favourite songs. The time signature is 3/4 so that was a little hard to figure out. After having carefully listened to this song an umpteen number of times, I saw that the drums are not following a strictly well-defined pattern, and I don’t really think that someone who wishes to play the drums of this song needs to follow my tabs very closely. If they generally stick to the principal patterns, it would do. I am quite sure that the Lakkhichhara drummer didn’t follow anything too strictly. He improvised variations on the spot, and the result just turned out to be that way. There are some small places where I have had to use notes on the side to explain what a particular stroke pattern should be like. I recommend that instead of trying to figure it out through my textual instructions, just listen to the song and it will be clear. These notes are not present in the tabs written below, because of layout problems. To get the complete tablature, along with the notes, just download this text file.

So here goes:

Despair

Sometimes I wish I weren’t born. This
pettiness of the world, it often gets me down. Am I above all this? I don’t
think so. But sometimes it all looks so petty. In those moments, I wish for
something detached from all this human pettiness, something higher and
inanimate and only conceptual. Something like a colour and a vision, an
infinite field, giving me a feeling, a far-away feeling, as if in a dream.

I know that’s not possible, but I swear by
whatever power that I am tired and sweaty with all this grueling pettiness. I
just don’t give a shit. I want to break free.

There’s so much of me that I’ve lost. No
one can bring it back again. I am so terrorized all the time, like right now.
Fearing aggravation, aggression, conflict. I am not meant to be here.

So, so petty. Could you imagine actually
counting the number of pictures? God, lead me from here.

1Life.

Two of Us #15

L Hi.

N Hey. Long time no see.

L Yeah, no time.

N What’s the deal now?

L I need to calm down and relax a bit. I’m getting a bit worked up about some issues. Related issues.

N Like what?

L I’m going to be frank here. It’s about how she is slowly letting me go.

N You aren’t ashamed to admit that you’re worried about such a thing?

L No. A bit, actually, but you know that I am always truthful over here.

N So, what’s the deal?

L Well, like I said before, I want to cease caring —

N Just a minute. Do you really mean this, or are you saying this from an angry impulse?

L Part of both. I’m angry, but it would help if I stopped caring so much. In fact, I had a talk with myself last night, I guess. Yeah, it was probably last night. And I said to myself, do I want to cease caring just so she will notice and give me attention then? And then I figured out that no, part of me really wanted to get over this mess and get some peace. And I also figured out that confronting myself like that was a bit difficult for me.

N Hence me.

L Right. By the way, interesting factoid. I get confused about time in general, I mean the coordinate values, whereas she is clueless about its first derivative.

N First derivative with respect to what?

L Time, of course. I meant how fast time passes.

N You cannot take time’s derivative with respect to itself.

L I sure can.

N You’ll just end up with 1 all the time.

L Oh, right… but then you must mean that ‘how fast time passes’ is a meaningless statement?

N Of course. Time itself is the measurer of how fast things pass. It’s absurd to want to know how fast time itself passes. And besides, time is a coordinate. You cannot take its derivative.

L I’m not sure about that last statement. Anyway, we are wandering.

N Is there a rule against wandering?

L No, but I want to talk about the issue, although I actually don’t want to. But I have to make myself do it.

N Okay, go ahead.

L So I need to cease caring. About all this in general. I’ve seen that I usually care a lot. Like that performance in college or the SSGC account.

N Those are different. Don’t mix them up.

L No, no, N. They are related. Pay attention. It’s all about how people are so callous and careless about stuff. I don’t get them. I don’t know how they can be so casual about things. This is the same thing. She is careless and irresponsible, and is not doing anything responsible about this.

N Ok.

L You know, I don’t want to talk about this. I’m just obsessing over this.

N What else would you call this, L? You’re after all talking to yourself. That’s the highest form of obsession.

L Cut it out, man. You grow less serious every time I meet you. There was a time when you used to be a soldier.

N I am what you make me, L.

L No. That’s not always true. The evolution of a character is somewhat independent of its author.

N It’s an illusion. The evolution is led by subconscious requirements. Your subconscious requirements.

L Then why don’t I like how you’ve become now?

N Because your subconscious requirements of the present are different from those in the past.

L I need to take a dump.

L Ok, back. And… I don’t have the mood now to talk about this.

N Wait. I asked you a question when you were in the loo. Do you regret your last relationship?

L Well, like I told you then, it’s a difficult question. It doesn’t have a straight answer. Yes, for a few days after we got into it, I used to really worry about what I’d got into. And I used to think that I’ve got into something very, very messy. But now, I don’t know. I don’t regret how it has finally turned out. But yes, I’m very relieved we quit.

N Ok. Do you really want to cease caring? What do you really want?

L Well, I…

N Come on, you said you are going to be frank and truthful here.

L Ok. I… I actually want us to be happy, and I want her to stop pushing me away like this. But of course, no one can take back what she has already done, and I cannot just forget that. I already know what is inside her. That cannot be undone. And no, I don’t want it to be undone. But yes, I want things to be happy between us, and I want her to want to be close to me. Close enough so that I can let her go from this obsessive mental hold I have on her. And I want us both to be able to let each other go.

N Isn’t that what she has done?

L No, not in that way. That is the complete antithesis of what I want. I didn’t mean let each other go like that. I meant, be open to the possibility of some other special person entering our lives, and stop being stupidly possessive of each other.

N Ten years down the line, you might have drifted so far away that you no longer talk, or haven’t talked for months and don’t feel the need to.

L I know that, N. I know all this will cease to matter sometime. But right now, it does matter. Anyway, I’m done here.

N Ok.

L So see you around, I guess.

N Yeah, bye.

L/N.
