I'm trying to create a backing track for Jason Mraz's "I'm yours". I need to lay out a drum track and i'm planning to use HammerHead or something similar. I tried experimenting a bit, but I'm totally lost as i have no clue about drumming

I couldn't find a drum tab either, so i need a bit of help on getting it created. Here's the song and the drum kicks in around 1:10.

Seems like a consistent beat, can someone help me transcribe one measure? I'll loop the rest. Grazie!

PS: It's been more than a year since i posted here,life happened. Hi to ya all.

Hi there. I don't know the song, but I did find a MIDI file that seems credible, so hopefully this can tide you over:
http://www.box.net/shared/jnqmpbhiyq
It's a zip archive containing 2 files:
The percussion track (it's got congas as well) iso'd in my DAW, assigned a kit and exported as a 192 k/b mp3 audio file (starts at beginning of track so you don't hear anything for a minute or so)
and
Just the percussion as a midi file. Any drum programming software should be able to import a MIDI file, so you can bring it in and play around with different kits. In case your drum track software doesn't twig to it: BPM is 76.
Hope that helps.
:)
I just set up the box.net account; let me know if you have any trouble d/l'ing.

Thanks much boxboy. The drum track sounds great but somehow doesn't fit in with the rhythm guitar strumming pattern.
I don't know if it's just my ear. So i'm trying to change my rhythm guitar track now.
But it's great help to be able to just listen to the drum track. Much appreciated.
