Product Details


Drumming legend Carmine Appice has once again updated the best-selling drumset book in the history of rock drumming. In addition to the classic information on basic rock rhythms and polyrhythms, linear rudiments and groupings, hi-hat and double bass drum exercises, and shuffle rhythms and syncopation exercises, Carmine has included over 20 new pages and a second CD of fresh material. The recordings have been re-mastered, with updates including three new play-along tracks and audio examples that correspond with the new sections on odd-time signatures, hands and feet combinations, and rave/dance drumming.
