Transcription: Sly Dunbar intros

Here's a project I had been meaning to tackle for awhile- a compilation of Sly Dunbar lead-ins. These are all taken from Serge Gainsbourg's album, Aux Armes Et Caetera, which is like a reggae drumming text book- nearly every track leads with an distinctive drum fill. I highly recommend that you purchase the tracks so you can hear the way he sets up the rhythm section and vocal entrances. And of course, no written notation is going to do Dunbar's playing justice.

Get the pdf.

Audio after the break.

This is a live version of the tune, but Dunbar plays the same part:
