(Berklee Press). Morph those boring 26 standard rudiments you learned into mind-blowing grooves, fills and solos! All that rhythmic sophistication you hear from great drummers can easily be broken down into its basic elements: the rudiments. Rudiments are the drum language: a basic vocabulary of rhythms that drummers arrange and rearrange when they play grooves, solos and fills. This book shows you how to apply them to the drum set in all styles of music. When you start combining the hands and feet, orchestrating different parts of the rudiments between the various drums and cymbals on your set, you'll start to make inspired music. Fifty illustrated grooves are reinforced on the accompanying CD so you can hear how the rudiments should sound when you apply them to the drum set. Discover how these basics become the foundation for all grooves and moves, including: single and double strokes; stroked rolls; drags; flams; paradiddles, double paradiddles, paradiddle grooves and fills; combinations and more. Your choices of accents, tempos, style and feel are what will ultimately make the rudiments into music. Learning and internalizing them will help you expand your vocabulary to play creative grooves, fills and solos. Use Rudiment Grooves for the Drum Set to create an infinite number of combinations, in any style, and at any tempo.

Robinson : "Itz mad cool" - Chris Dave : "I love this book, it is great" - Gerald Heyward : "I found it really informative, useful and visually interesting." : Clayton Cameron Drummers are athletes. Playing the drums well requires the skilled use of the entire body. Unfortunately, most books on drumming focus exclusively on what notes should be played, and give little or no attention to the how they should be played. This leaves drummers with a problem. When you misunderstand technique, you will experience frustration when new techniques aren't as easy to learn as they should be, limitation in what you can do because the techniques don't work like they should, and injury when the extra wear and tear caused by bad technique builds up. The solution is simple: Anatomy of Drumming is your guide to moving well, learning faster and avoiding injury. When you understand the mechanics of moving and how they apply to the drums, you will know for yourself how techniques work, so you can use them effectively. Anatomy of Drumming is both a description of how the body works and a prescription for how to move better. Starting with the mechanics of movement, Anatomy of Drumming takes you through what you need to know about the body and how to use it effectively. It covers the basics of anatomy and the physics of drums; how to set up the drums for your body, Moeller technique, matched grip vs. traditional grip, and many other important topics. Through learning about the proper use of the body at the drum set, you will be able to learn faster, play with better facility and reduce injury.
