#beginquote# For marching band, they often use tonal cymbals (like tonal bass drums). If this is what you mean, the "staff will have four spaces. each space represents a different cymbal. If you mean on drum set music, it varies but there is usually a "legend" at the beginning of the piece which tells you what is what. Try this link: http://www.drumrhythms.com/english/tablature/tabslintroeng.htm As far as the other notation, when the composer wants a choke (where the player stops the sound immediately after the crash) he/she will write an x. If the cymbals are to ring, it will be an x with an arch or dash after it. GOOOOOOROOOOOO #endquote#
