Contemporary Linear Drumming
A concise, conceptual explanation of the building blocks of linear drumming
Contemporary Linear Drumming, by Michael Vosbein, is a concise, conceptual explanation of the building blocks of linear drumming published by Hudson Music.
Seeking to avoid writing an exercise book filled with his own ideas and patterns, Michael instead offers concise, conceptual explanations of the building blocks of linear drumming, along with written examples and variations. Students are challenged to write in their own grooves, in workbook fashion, gradually assembling a written collection of their work.
The advanced sections express linear concepts across the kit, as they apply to time playing, reading figures, and improvising solos.
The book culminates with what Vosbein names Linear Matrixing, a virtually endless way to musically apply variations.
