Joel Rothman's Mini-Monster Book Of Rock Drumming
contains hundreds of exercises to develop the basic drum techniques necessary to cope with various forms of rock music.
There are two main sections - the first half deals with two, three, and four-way coordination, while the second half focuses on various approaches to playing rock breaks.
Many of the pages that deal with coordination have exercises notated with a steady eighth-note rock cymbal rhythm. After mastering the exercises as written you can gain even greater coordination by replaying them with a straight quarter-note cymbal rhythm as well as a cymbal rhythm with continual upbeat eighth-notes.
This edition has been revised and greatly expanded with new material - it is now almost double the size of the original version.
