Turn those standard 26 rudiments into mind-blowing groovers, fills and solos.
All that rhythmic sophistication you hear in the playing of great drummers can easily be broken down into its basic elements: the rudiments. Rudiments are the drum language, a basic vocabulary of rhythms that drummers arrange and rearrange when they play grooves, solos and fills. This book shows you how to apply the rudiments to the drum set in all styles of music. When you start combining the hands and feet, orchestrating different parts of the rudiments between the various drums and cymbals on your set, you'll start to make inspired music.
Fifty illustrated grooves are reinforced with the accompanying CD; hear how the rudiments sound when you apply them to the drum set. Discover how these basics become the foundation for all grooves and moves, including:
  • Single and double strokes
  • Stroked rolls
  • Drags
  • Flams
  • Paradiddles, double paradiddles, paradiddle grooves, and fills
  • Combinations
    Your choices of accents, tempos, style, and feel are what will ultimately make the rudiments into music. Learning and internalizing them will help you expand your vocabulary to play creative grooves, fills, and solos. Use Rudiment Grooves to create an infininte number of combinations, in any style, and at any tempo.

    Rating Review
    Customer Rating This book will take a long time to get through! It has so much in the way of performance ideas including solos, fills and grooves all based on rudiments. The CD that accompanys the book has some quality playing on it which gives you a target to work up to as well as a reference to get started.

    The book contains many examples of rhythms based on the rudiments, but the author makes it clear that you should expand on his ideas to get the most out of it.

    If you get easily tired of playing rudiments or you can't see the benefit of learning them... get this book, it'll change your playing!
