Boz Scaggs – Lowdown (Drum Sheet Music)

The drum sheet music for “Lowdown” by Boz Scaggs, an extract of my book Jeff Porcaro Grooves: 8 Drum Transcriptions, is now available. Here’s the link for purchase the drum transcription.

The song is the first single extracted from the album Silk Degrees (1976), another classic groove by the great Jeff Porcaro.
The drum groove presents an 8th note hi-hat pattern with strong accents on the downbeat that you can hear on the right channel, there is also an overdubbed hi-hat part in 16th notes on the left channel. As you can see in the image below the transcription have a double notation: the overdubbed hi-hat and the main groove.

Ghost notes are one of the most remarkable Jeff Porcaro’s elements, both in the groove and in the fills. After the first backbeat he plays a tasty soft ghost note, a simple and deserving bass drum line complete this classic groove.
