I don't normally say this about any book on drumming, but this truly is in a class of its own. The book contains 3 different groove ideas (written in standard drum notation) and a chart of the basic structure for each track. These grooves range from very easy "only been playing a month" type stuff and the way to stuff that is challenging to grade 8 students. And then we come to the tracks themselves. They are quality recordings with a top class band and actually manage to capture the feel of everything from heavy rock to small group swing to mambos and calypsos.
The only downside is that the cds are mp3 cds - so you need a computer. And that there are no drums on the cd's - so nothing to copy if you cant read music (although everyone should be able to read drum music shouldn't they!). There are also no fills detailed, but part of the fun is working out the extra bits for your self.
Buy it, it really will take your playing to the next level.
