This book is to be released in June 2017.
To be able to play an instrument requires a long journey. For some, this journey goes surprisingly quick, for others it seems an eternal quest. Anyway, to master the drums it is key to focus on three main topics.
- Play along with musicians (or audio) in different tempos and styles.
- Play beats (or grooves) in which the feel and independence is trained.
- Play fills in which technique, style and chops (or licks) are combined.
Often these 3 main topics are studies separately, which is perfect to obtain a good and solid fundation. But the next step is crucial: Learning to combine these three topics.
And that is what this duo-book 360drums is about! The two separate books will help you to combine easy and more complex fills with beats in different styles and feels. Place book 1 on the left side of your music stand and place book 2 on the right side. Off you go!
Play along mp3’s are available in all important tempos. These play along mp3’s are not real songs. Every mp3 is a 12-bar-loop. This helps to study to play drums at different energy levels. Although the duo-book is not released yet, the audio-files (demo-versions) can be listened and used here. Video-clips can help you while studying specific chapters.
