5.0 out of 5 stars practice, practice, practice!! 19 May 2006
Format:Paperback
Rock Drums Basics is in fact, one of the easiest ways for you to learn how to count, read notes and play the drums. it includes all common 2 & 4 snare rhythms, and a chapter about developing a groove with a bass player,which is a very important skill for a rock drummer.

I really enjoyed using this book as a teaching aide; some musical background would allow for faster progress through the book but even if you have no musical background you will improve,with practice :-)

The CD that comes with the book is really helpful.It starts with basic patterns but gets progressively more complex to the point where you will be able to play along with three songs (included on CD)rock, ballad and shuffle.

With this book you will learn 19 rock patterns with at least two additional variations of each one, plus some fills for each groove. Make sure you practice on a drum kit and not a practice pad.

The book can really help you understand the important part a drummer 'plays' in any band, and, even better, anybody can use this excellent book! It is a boon to anyone into drums and drumming!!

5.0 out of 5 stars You will really learn 17 Jun 2005
By A. Alvarez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Without any previous drumming backgroud, I enrolled in a beginers class at college just for fun. We used Rock Drums Basics as one of our textbooks. It soon became my favorite book. It really starts with the basic patterns but gets progressively more complex to the point where you can play along three real songs (included in CD), rock, ballad and shuffle.

With this book you will learn about 19 rock patterns with at least two additional variations of each one plus some fills for each groove. Just make sure you practice on a drum set and not on a practice pad. You will really have fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's good! 15 Aug 2007
By S. Ewin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I started drumming about 2 months ago with a basic set, Tommy Igoe's 'Getting Started on the drums' dvd and this book. The book is endless pages of exercises that gradually builds in difficulty. It's great. Each new pattern gets you using all four limbs, and are easy to modify for more practice (open/closed hi hats, crash vs hi hats, etc). It's got sycophated patterns, drum fills, and stuff on establishing a 'groove' with a band/bass player. Not the end-all of drum books, but perfect for beginners.
