First time entering drums - need help
OK so I know nothing at all about drums, so I read all the help manuals. I did learn a lot, and now I have my first sheet music that includes drum notation. It looks like a 5-line drumset so that's the instrument I added. The score is in 4/4 time, and the first measure shows 8 "beats" for the high hat (8 -1/8th notes) joined with a beam like any other 1/8th notes - two beams of 4 each. So I figure I would open the drumset menu, select the 1/8th note symbol and start entering the drum notes. But no matter what note I choose from the notes above the score (1/16, 1/8, 1/4. 1/2 etc) the drum notes will only enter 4- 1/4th notes and go on to the next measure. I tried going into the "edit" mode, selecting the note, and clicking on the 1/8th note symbol, but it doesn't change it. Any ideas, suggestions are welcome. Thanks.
