About this deal

From dotted eighths and sixteenths, to accented eighths and triplets, to dotted sixteenths, this guidebook provides a comprehensive insight into advanced and complex drumming patterns.

Drummers have said this is one of the best drumming books and really lays out a framework and mindset you can adapt to build your drumming vocabulary up!Puts you in the present moment. While drumming you are moving your awareness toward the flow of life. When you are flowing with the rhythm of life you cannot be caught up in your past or worrying about your future. If you want to learn more about “liberating the master musician within”, I’ll leave you with a lesson from Kenny Werner. I know it’s not drums, but I promise it’s worth your time!

Drum circles have come a long way over the last 20 years. They are showing up all over the place. We have gone way beyond the campfire drum circle! There are many new people entering the drumming community as it evolves into many new areas in society. It makes me happy to see percussion sounds being used in music therapy programs. I’ve used it for special needs students. There are Hospitals who have therapeutic programs which involve drumming and the use of percussion instruments as part of their therapy. In this book, Rich breaks down his “CRASH” acronym (Commitment, Relationships, Attitude, Skills, and Hunger) in-depth and describes how to use each of these in all areas of your life. Written by one of the hardest working drummers in the industry, his perspective is a must-read for any drummer looking to enhance their skills and mindset! Mind Matters: Overcoming Common Mental Barriers In Drumming Description: This book will take you through tons of different exercises, beats, and fills that will help you develop your double bass technique, speed, and endurance. Whether you’re just starting out with double bass or you’ve been playing double bass for years, this book will challenge you! Aligns your body and mind with the natural world. The Greek origin of the word “rhythm” is “to flow.” Drumming allows you to flow with the rhythms of life by simply feeling the beat. Also, you can practice different beat elements by listening to the audio examples of the beats and breaks from the book.Zen in the Art of Archery was the next book I read. The author, Eugen Herrigel is a German philosophy professor. While teaching at the University of Tokyo, he took it upon himself to take up Zen, which in Japan is learned through art forms such as archery. Learning in this way is more about spiritual growth through an art form. I was fascinated to find an uncanny parallel between musical headspace and what Eugen describes in some of his experiences learning archery and, more specifically, Zen. Subdividing Breaking down quarter-, eighth-, and sixteenth-notes into their least common denominator (sixteenth-notes) helps the beginner keep these rhythms in time. Developing a good foundation helps newbies then branch out to more complex rhythms. Ex. 13 In this exercise, quarters, eighths, and sixteenths are in a sequence. Make sure to count a steady stream of sixteenth-notes all the way through as you play.

This drumming gem written by John Riley will help you get through all those irregular patterns, unusual beats, fast solos, and other elements of bop music. Drummers can learn how each musical genre developed and inspired the next in the book’s historical breakdowns for each style and sub-style. In addition, the best drum performances from every genre are included in the author’s meticulously crafted list of recommended listening material. The book also provides detailed breakdowns of the most significant drum grooves from the previous century, allowing drummers to visualize the rhythms. Description: Alan Dawson taught some of the world’s greatest drummers including Tony Williams, Vinnie Colaiuta, and Steve Smith. This book will cover Dawson’s approach to rudiments, coordination, and soloing. Also included is his approach to interpreting Ted Reed’s Syncopation book.Looking Ahead Reading and playing rhythmic notation can be a challenge when your eye remains on the rhythm at hand. Once you get more familiar with the rhythms you’re reading, begin to look a beat or more ahead, as you do when you read text in a book. The book itself starts with single hand-to-foot combinations but later progresses through more complex bass drum patterns. Drummers have said this book is wonderful for extending your ‘vocab’ behind the drums and that it’s very effective for students looking to improve their creative awareness of the drums. Benny’s approach to drumming is based on the familiar concept of language learning, offering practical exercises for grooves, fills, independence, and other techniques.
