How to play Carol of the bells by Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

First, we rest. Or… be silly like me 😉

Part A1:
Notice we are now in 6/8 time signature.
That means we are counting up to 6 for every measure.

Here’s an example how to count this first 2 measures we play.
Bold = Drum Part

1 2 3 4 5 6 1 2 3 4 5 6

Count out loud at first. Say every number but say the bold ones louder.

Does that make sense?

Part B:
Just one hit at the beginning of each measure.

1 2 3 4 5 6 1 2 3 4 5 6

Part C:
Only one hit on beat 1 of the two measures.

1 2 3 4 5 6 1 2 3 4 5 6

Part D:
Play all 6 beats for two measures in a row.

1 2 3 4 5 6 1 2 3 4 5 6

And that’s it for this sample!
