TITLE: Advance Techniques for the Modern Drummer
AUTHOR: Jim Chapin
Comments: All I can say about this book, is that it is the most difficult book I've ever used. It is truly the Bible to Jazz drumming. I've only gone through the first couple pages and it's frustrating..which is good! The concepts are fine to understand if you have experience in reading music, but without being able to read music, it will be pretty difficult, but doable! Buy this book.
