This book, CD and CD-Rom package contains 101 basic drum loops providing authentic grooves from a broad range of modern rock styles. The book contains drum music notation for all 101 beats, organised by style. The CD-Rom contains audio files for the loops and their variations, making over 800 loops in total. The audio CD contains quick audio demonstrations of the 101 drum beats so you can quickly hear how they sound. All the loops are completely royalty-free, mixed for use with real instruments.
I wouldn't recommend this book to beginners, as it doesn't actually give any guidence in playing the drums. But if you are after a book that gives you new ideas for rhythms, or just want to broaden your drumming vocabulary, this book is great. If you are part of a band then I’d recommend this book. The CD’s that are included are also very useful.

Les patterns sont utilisables dan l'état même s'il ne s'agit pas de rythmiques très originales.
La prise de son est trés bonne.
Pour un projet simple, c'est OK.

This is a wicked book containing all you need. If like me, you think rock rules, this book will help you learn new beats to play along to your favourite tracks at home. I'm also in a band and this really helps for ideas.

Great sounding drum beats. Very easy to work with if you have looping software. Just not enough good, high bpm rock and metal beats. None of them are good at that though. Too much pop and other junk but overall there's something for everyone and the sound quality is certainly there. Worth the purchase anyway.
