This book offers challenging material for the intermediate to advanced drummer. Addressing a multitude of styles, Frank Briggs helps guide your playing to a higher plane while improving your technique and raising your awareness of cutting edge concepts such as metric modulation, displaced beats, polyrhythms, and more. Frank Briggs states, "He believes the more you know about different styles and the inner workings of time and phrasing, the better your ability to contribute to the music at hand. The clearer you see the parallels or the common threads that tie these concepts together, the more freedom you will have to express yourself." This package includes the companion DVD: Re-edited from the original masters, this DVD offers challenging material for the intermediate to advanced drummer. All special effects have been removed and the sound track has been encoded in Dolby Digital stereo. Twenty-one play-along tracks, CueLink(tm) and a metronome make this DVD the most valuable cutting edge educational tool for drummers on the market today.

It includes over 115 minutes of drumming and is the perfect companion to the Complete Modern Drum Set Book (nearly every page in the book is performed... including page headers and pattern numbers for easy reference).
