Roger Carter’s Zero-G is here!

Saturday, July 22nd, 2017

Zero-G is a lot jam from rudimental drumming legend Roger Carter and premiered by the 2017 Bluecoats drumline. This entire jam is based on a simple syncopated theme where the beat is obscured, giving the listener multiple interpretations of the pulse. This theme goes through many transformations, adding diddles, singles, flams, and different sticking patterns. Zero-G was premiered by the 2017 Bluecoats drumline.

The sheet music is available exclusively from Tapspace. Click here to check it out!

Congratulations to Ralph Hicks and Let Them Drum!—winners of the “Tell Us Your Story” video campaign

Ralph Hicks and the students of Let Them Drum! from The Woodlands, TX are the winners of our “Tell Us Your Story” campaign. As a result of their fun video entry telling us how they incorporate Virtual Drumline, they’ve won $200 toward anything on the Tapspace website.


When we notified Ralph about of the good news, he shared, “Thank you so much for this generous prize! We here at Let Them Drum have been ardent supporters of Team Tapspace since the days of Spice Mon and that funky looking ‘T.’ We look forward to spreading the love to as many schools in the community as we can, donating world class literature you can only find with Tapspace!”

Thanks to everyone who shared their story with us, and for all the ongoing support from our wide-reaching percussion community. We definitely couldn’t do what we do without you!
