Overview

(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.

    Go Back to the Basics

    Every percussionist knows the rudiments. They have been ingrained in their mind from their first lesson. 'Rudiment Grooves for Drum Set' goes back to the basics, examining them in detail and showing readers how to internalize them and make them their own. Although rudiments have been studied for years, before now there has never been a concise and complete guide discussing them. In additon, the accompanying CD provides fifty tracks to play along to and explore. Praised in both Modern Drummer and Teaching Music magazine, this book is a must have for any drummer.
