Default Re: DRUM INSTRUCTION DVD & BOOK REVIEWS

TITLE: Groove Essentials
AUTHOR: Tommy Igoe
PUBLISHER: Hudson Music & Vic Firth
RATING: 5/5

Comments: This book is really what it says it is, groove essentials! It gives basic and advanced grooves in many styles of drumming ranging from Rock, to jazz, to funk, rnb, and ever world beats. It also comes with a DVD and a playalong CD to practice your grooves to. Tommy Igoe explains everything in a very comprehensional way, so everyone can use this book!

TITLE: Advance Techniques for the Modern Drummer
AUTHOR: Jim Chapin
RATING: 5/5

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.
