Music: drum notation

Picture says it all:

In a DAW, those 3 drum types are represented as C(bass), D(snare), and G#(hi-hat). So that will be confusing for anyone maybe expecting F(bass), C(snare), and G(hi-hat), as it were a treble clef. Here’s how something a bit more regular than than above looks like in a DAW (Reaper, in this case):

Then I went looking for a song to test out my new found knowledge. On YouTube, there is a very good drum tutor, who kindly also includes the drum notation for what he shows. He demonstrated Superstition:

I took the first 7 bars from the pdf in the demo and stuck that in a Reaper and midi file. It’s here. I can’t guarantee it will always stay in that location, but if you look for [SuperstitionStart] in GitHub, you should find it if it does move.

While doing this, I found a great free drum VST –¬†http://www.powerdrumkit.com/. Those are the drums you here in the wav I recorded for this.
