A REALLY good book. Buy it if you don't have it yet! Been working on it for four years!
Rudiments, accents, rock and jazz and Latin rhythms, independence, polyrhythms and dynamics are addressed thoroughly and it’s also packed with many of the “secrets” found in the finest drummers of yesterday and today.
For me your book has become an instant classic. I worked on it a little since I got it, and it has influenced my playing for the best already.
The buzz is strong inside drum circles that this book is the "Stick Control" of the future, so I took the plunge and indeed, it was a revelation!
I love your practical (and rare approach) this is how it applies to MUSIC. That is after all why we work on anything technical.
David's book is great. I think the real power in it is that it opens up a world of possibilities using a very simple, but very powerful method.
It is an amazingly in-depth work and is a very useful resource which approaches the basis of rhythmic structure in a detailed and systematic way.
Legendary book ... I push this thing like I have stock in it. It’s full of seemingly endless possibilities and is one of those books that allows you to amaze yourself with your own playing the very day you open it.
Fantastic logical approach, endless musical ideas... it makes everything you ever heard your favorite drummer do seem accessible
I received the book and fell in love with it immediately. Coming up with and developing a novel approach to teach drums at all levels is a mind-boggling accomplishment.
I highly recommend David's book! His quote from Tony Williams in the preface says it all. Another great addition to our percussive library!
The application of the table of time to the drumset using all four limbs makes this material a formidable challenge for drummers of all levels.
