The Power of Practice
Practice routines designed for long-term improvement on the drumset
A NEW BOOK FROM ANDY STURGES & HUDSON MUSIC
The Power of Practice by Andy Sturges provides an intensive series of practice routines designed for long-term improvement on the drumset. The book documents every rhythmical combination possible using the seven quarter- or eighth-note placements within an eighth-note triplet, while keeping the traditional swing ride pattern with the lead hand. Seven different “chunks,” representing the different permutations of the triplet, are presented for practice and memorization, and then applied to other practice approaches.
