Product Details


This book & CD focuses on the drumset as it relates to the rest of the rhythm section. Various scenarios are discussed and represented in diagram form, including setups and drum tuning suggestions. Various styles of music, such as medium swing, up-tempo swing, rock, fusion, Latin styles, vocal jazz, and odd time are then studied. Throughout each style of music, the author discusses, from a drummer's perspective, numerous techniques and approaches that apply (for example, left-hand triplet interplay). Soloing, improvisation, chart reading, and ear training are also covered. The CD play-along allows the reader the opportunity to read, listen, and practice what is discussed.
