I bought a drum set a couple of years ago and struggled the first year to make any progress at actually learning how to play the drums. I tried lessons, which were way too expensive. Also tried many website looking for free info. The web was a good resource, but didn't go into enough detail. Last year, I bought this book. It starts from the very beginning: how to hold sticks, where to place drums, how to sit, how to read sheet music, etc. Even if you already know how to play the drums, the beginning of the book helps you use proper techniques. Once you get beyond the basics, the book goes over many different styles of music. Each section has many examples and rich variety of beats to play. Since buying the book, I've greatly improved by drumming skills to the point that even my wife gives me complements (and that's saying something!). The CD that comes with the book has samples from the sheet music, which helps you get a feel for the actual sounds and beats. This is a well written book that is great for beginners and is well worth the money (best $20 I¿ve spent on drumming).
