I'm learning so much from the book, and its really broaden my playing.
I have loads of fun playing Jack DeJohnettes transcriptions. For the 10 seconds I play the 4 bars of his comping, makes me feel happy to be playing something he played, note for note. I don't know, it kind of dismistifies what is a baffling at times to hear. That man is a genius.
Sorry for the random post! :)
I feel you my man
that book is so packed with knowledge it feels like it never ends ....Ill work on a chapter.....then after a few months I go back to that chapter and re work it again and learn more than I did the first time
I agree.....I feel so amazing inside when I play the Jack and the Elvin transcriptions on that book.
it fills me with joy and excitement every single time
I feel like I will forever be working out of all 3 of Mr. Rileys books.....but especially Beyond Bop and Jazz Drummers Workshop
they have opened my eyes to so many things and I am forever thankful that they exist
