Ok so how do I read tabs like this considering the drums. What's each number (Cymball,High-hat,Snare etc.). I would really appreciate it if you could explain to me. I was searching on the net and only found tabs that were formatted differently. Thanks. (What does each number symbolize?).

Looks like something for programmed drums to me, so you might need the right programme to use / understand it. When I've used something like Tux Guitar to make a drum track, each part of the kit would have a number (eg kick might be 36, snare be 38 etc) and it looked exactly like that. Does the tab have any recommended programmes or anything to use?

Hmm, I see it was made on Guitar Pro. So I might check out some sheet on the net with the midi samples.

It's guitar pro. 38 is a snare, 36 is a kick, 45, 43 and 41 are different toms, 49 and 57 are cymbals, 46 is an open hi-hat.

Getting guitar pro isn't a dumb idea. Easy to use, and I prefer it to tux guitar, power tab etc.

Yeah. If the free side of the things is the OP's best avenue, though, then I do recommend TuxGuitar, it serves me just fine and can open both guitarpro and powertab file types. Also, Ultimate Guitar (tabs website) is host to a ton of GuitarPro files, and nowadays the site has its own built-in GP file player. It's decidedly "meh", but it's better than nothing. If you do get into using GuitarPro or TuxGuitar, though, I will note that often - at least in the case of TuxGuitar - the percussion track may be listed under the instrument section as "Piano 1". I have no idea why this is, but it typically has no effect on the track.

Yeah, I don't think tux guitar is a bad program or anything. I got it, as well as guitar pro. But whenever I can use guitar pro I use it.

The bold part happens in guitar pro at times too. I'm not sure why either. It's just weird, but it doesn't really matter.

Anyway, either program are highly recommended if you're in need of a tab reader like this.

Thanks very much for explaining the numbers my friend. Guitar pro is fine. I just want to use samples for more real sound
