‘This book was inspired by thousands of lessons and dozens of workshops I have given over the years since 1995 when I opened my own drumming studio. This book was written with both beginner and advanced drummers in mind, and is meant to enhance the technical skills of the drummer through melodic breaks (fill-ins) and various drumming techniques. There are 101 breaks in this book in many different styles (hip-hop, trip-hop, rock, jazz, funk, blues and more) and different time signatures (4/4, 2/4, 6/8, 12/8). This book was carefully designed to convey its content in a simple and straightforward way. I believe and hope that after you have learned the exercises in this book, you will find yourself free of old, confining drumming patterns, and inspired with your own, new, creative ideas that will fill you with the joy of music.’
Exercises to strengthen your ability to play one rhythm against another. Helps develop your groove in all styles of playing.
