    Classic Drum Book for Hand Conditioning/Practice

    Stick Control is such a classic amongst drummers everywhere. It is great for hand conditioning, and written in a way that one plays the same rhythm over and over - but with various stickings, thus making it more interesting and challenging - while one is engaging in repetition which develops control, endurance, speed and power.

    Many have taken the first 3 pages and devised several additional ways to apply these exercises. Others have applied the book to their feet. Many have also developed proper ergonomic/efficiency stroke motions first (e.g., Free Stroke/Rebound), and then applied it to the exercises in this book while using a metronome for one minute straight.

    Easy guide to building chops for a drummer

    This book was originally written in 1935, and it is still around, which says a lot. If you want a good book to build up your hands, or develop your weaker hand, this one is great. There is even a list of professional drummers who have used( endorsed) it on the inside leaf : )
