this book is for american marching drum players, but it wicked so drumset players should have it as well. good for all levels from beginer to advanced.
Alfred publishing co.
this is quite a hefty book with 160 pages 2 cd's and it cost £20 front cover discription "for beginer to advanced player, over 400 exercises, gain imediate stick control speed and efficency of motion, enhance your reading skills, 40 rudimental solos with cd acomanyment, 10 groove tracks in various styles, 2 bonous contest solos with cd acomanyment."
This book is really fun, and since i have got it my double have improved loads. it goes through all the 40 rudiemnts. each rudiment has 10-15 exercises on it then there is a peice of music revolving around that particular rudiment which you play along to on a track on the cd.
This maybe aimed at marching drum players but it makes practicing rudiments a lot more interesting, and gives you lots of ways of practicing them. i deffinatly recomend it. and every body need to practice those rudiments!
You can also practice all the exercises with you feet as well!
