With The Post-Bop Drum Book, jazz/funk drumming legend Mike Clark provides a complete overview of contemporary jazz drumming. The book combines conceptual text with notated exercises, transcriptions and performance concepts covering bebop and post-bop drumming.
There are two kinds of drummers in this world – those that have worked through Rick Latham’s Advanced Funk Studies and Contemporary Drumset Techniques, and those that WILL work through Advanced Funk Studies and Contemporary Drumset Techniques.
The Drummer In You by Bobby Deitch is a ground-breaking, innovative, easy method for learning how to play the drum set. The book does not use standard rhythmic notation, but will have any drum enthusiast playing the coolest rock beats before you know it. The book focuses on playing many of the more popular rock beats mixed with some popular Latin, Funk and R&B beats.
Kangarudiments, by Art Bernstein, is an eBook featuring rudiment lists and etudes/solos for snare drum.
The book includes 34 pages of warmups, rudiments, and snare drum solos. Designed for beginning to intermediate player, the solos feature a variety of rudiments, which progress in difficulty as the book advances. Each solo can be performed at a range of tempos, and suggested stickings are notated for each.
Also included are video examples for each solo, performed at various tempos, to serve as a guide for students and teachers, alike.
Rhythmic Imagination: Brazilian Rhythms Coordination Studies, by Ramon Montagner, seeks to help students develop the aptitude for the execution of rhythms, and ascend some steps further in the sense of rhythmic independence.
The method is based on his extensive use and experimentation of his own material with students for over a decade, inspired by the systems used by Gary Chester, Alan Dawson, and John Ramsay, as well as Marvin Dahlgren, Elliot Fine, and Norman Grossman.
