5.0 out of 5 stars This should be the first book you buy for drums, 28 Oct. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stick Control (Staple Bound)
Stick Control does what any good book in the field should do: it has a positive effect on every style you play. While this is true of many books on drumming, none have saturated the drumming culture so totally as this. Ask any professional drummer what exercises they use to practice and 95% will either be using this book or will have used it at some point. The first page alone, when properly mastered, will elevate any dummers ability to control their sound and express themselves more freely. That is after all the point of drumming and what defines good drummers: the lack of barriers between their ideas and their playing.

By working through these absolute fundamentals, the student will erode major barriers to their self-expression and be able to do what they want without worrying whether their hands can keep up. The exercises require discipline, hard-work and time. That is the reality of art and the reward for following this book is a more mature and unrestricted relationship with the intrument we all love.
