Alive Drumming is dedicated to bringing the very best rhythmic backing to the world, in it’s most convenient and inspiring form. We strive to cover rhythms for all genres of popular music, from jazz, country, folk, latin, rock, pop and eventually including everything else. We aim to serve every continent, nation, and culture. If your style of music isn’t represented, and you’d like it to be and you play the drums or percussion, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Song Form - For rhythmic backing, we consider a song’s musical “form” to be simply the sequence of sections that are performed, each identified by its length in bars and whether or not it’s a ‘bridge’. Don’t be concerned if that appears complicated. It isn’t; you will get the idea very quickly."

Alive Drumming Continues To Innovate
This is a significant release for Song Rhythm Tracks, bringing much more functionality and more stability. Search has really matured allowing for track duplication during search and, on search completion, auto-browse to last track accessed. These two features really assist those with large collections of tracks in a very common use-case — searching for a song by name, playing it, and then deciding to create a duplicate and edit the duplicate for an alternative arrangement.
Drumming Holds — or breaks — is where the drumming stops for a bar. It adds drama to a drum arrangement and some songs have very characteristic breaks — “Song For My Father” and “I Get A Kick Out of You” come to mind. It’s now possible to add these holds to your arrangements as part of a user-defined arrangement. The screen-shot shows three holds added to an arrangement of “Song For My Father” providing the characteristic holds for this song. These bars will start with a drum hit and hold off playing until the next bar is started. They will do that at the selected bars, 6, 14, and 22, for each chorus of the song.
Pushes is where an extra drum hit is added, slightly earlier than expected, to push along the rhythm. Their selection works in a similar manner to holds. Select the location and press the pink “+” button to add it to the table. Entries may be removed from the table by swiping left. The selected location will receive an extra drum hit, an 8th-note early to push the rhythm along. The location of pushes may use bar-numbers, in the same way as holds, but also beat numbers and sub-divisions.
Setlist Sharing Facilities
A great new feature for the Giant Panda, also requested by users, is the Setlist Sharing Facilities. They work in a similar manner to track sharing. Users may share their setlists by name by pressing the share button once a setlist list name has been entered. This is accessible on the setlist configuration page, which is where you name setlists. Once shared, that setlist can be searched for and retrieved by any Song Rhythm Tracks user, and when found the setlist gets populated with all the tracks in the shared setlist. Again, it is the name of the setlist that is the key to both sharing and searching for setlists, and this name must be an exact match (other than upper and lower case). The tracks are populated into your device’s setlist in the ‘deferred’ state, meaning that the definition of the track is complete but it has not yet been requested for download. The track-lists of all the existing ‘Sampler’ iOS apps have been shared as setlists making it so convenient to retrieve a list and then select the particular track you wish to download.
