* ArtisticLicenseMusic: The printed music that comes out of a snare drum solo in the middle of the movie has sharps and flats, despite the fact that a snare drum has only one note (roughly, "bang"). Besides the "bang," (notated with a note) there are also flams (where both hands hit the drum at the same speed with one slightly higher than the other; notated with one grace note to another note), double strokes (where two notes are played in one hand throughout the duration of the beat specified; notated with a slash through the note's stem), rim shots (where the shoulder of the stick hits the rim at the same time as the tip of the stick hitting the head; notated with an x on the line where notes are), and many other notations which do not use sharps or flats.

* ArtisticLicenseMusic: The printed music that comes out of a snare drum solo in the middle of the movie has sharps and flats, despite the fact that a snare drum has only one note (roughly, "bang"). The main notations for drumming are things like rests(silence), flams(both sticks hitting within an instant of each other) and paradiddles(left-right-left-left or the reverse).
