I tried to PM him, but that's been disabled on this forum, so I figured I'd post here instead. Any help on the matter will be MUCH appreciated.

Hi,

I'm a drummer currently studying 'Music Performance' as a 12th grade student at Elizabeth College in Hobart, Australia. I have to perform for 30 minutes for a panel of examiners at the end of the school year for my final assessment. I'm allowed to play along to backing tracks or with other musicians.

I recently picked up On The Virg - Serious Young Insects, and have decided that I'd like to play track 5, Pyramids On Mars for my practical examination.

As I don't know of other musicians in the area who could learn the song by ear and accompany me in my exam, is it possible for me to get an mp3/cd/etc. of the song without the drums? If not, is there a midi track or sheet music available?

My email address is Gherkin @ mailshack.com (Minus the spaces. Don't want to get thrown on spamming lists... :eek: )

Thanks in advance,
Aidan

P.S. Do you count the intro in 7/4, 21/8, 4/4 or something else? I have to transcribe the drum part for the examiners and would like to use the 'proper' time signature. :p

EDIT: I just noticed the 'Music Without Drums' section of this forum. It it possible for Pyramids On Mars to be added there?

virgil's book has all of the sheet music, and an explanation of all of the grooves. the opening groove is in 7/16.

Thanks.

Does Virgil's book have the sheet music for ALL instruments, or just the drums?

EDIT: Never mind. I just found the book. It looks like it's EXACTLY what I need! Thanks. Now I just have to find somewhere to buy it locally... :)
