Groove Studies has been written for intermediate-level drummers who want to take their playing to the next level. Being able to play a fast and complex rhythm is pointless if it doesn't have a good feel. This book will help players to focus on applying the skills and concepts they have already learned in order to inject their playing with life, character and feel. The exercises in this book are fun as well as useful and studies are included on the subjects of timing, motion, coordination, technique and touch.
Groove Studies features:
- 73 audio tracks that include demos and full-band tracks that can be used as play-alongs
- Basic beats with accented hi-hat
- Use of rimshots and ghost notes
- Pull-outs and controlled strokes
- Triplets and shuffle rhythms
- Cymbal ostinatos and more
The price of the book includes access to audio tracks that are available online for streaming or download using the unique code provided. Groove Studies includes Playback+, a multi-functional audio player that allows you to slow down audio without changing pitch, set loop points and pan left or right - available exclusively from Hal Leonard.
