Product Details


Fundamental Drumstick Control presents essential snare drum technique for the drumset player. The book provides the fundamental stroke types and combinations popular and necessary for today's contemporary drummer. Many of the initial rudiments are covered by stroke type with drumset applications (both time keeping and fills/solos) for each section. This book, in combination with the more advanced Drumstick Control, is a complete technical method organized in a realistic, step-by-step process. It focuses on developing stick proficiency through an independent, "hands-separate" approach. The exercises included represent the foundation of strokes without accents, while providing the framework for hand development, endurance, and speed training, as well as ideas for maintaining lifelong chops.
