NAME:
CROSS-STICKING STUDIES (EXERCISES FOR MOVING AROUND THE DRUMSET)

By RON SPAGNARDI
STAR RATING:
#####
WORDED RATING:

This book is simply written, progressive and FUN!
TARGET AUDIENCE:
Intermediate onwards

PUBLISHED BY:
Modern drummer publications
DESCRIPTION:

If you want to cross stick like Buddy Rich you have to learn how to organise your limbs. This progressive book is simple (only ever showing movement between the small tom, snare drum and floor tom) and progressive. It focuses on a single cross over movement at a time and puts it in various places. What I loved about this book is how soon results appear.




NAME:
1001 DRUM GROOVES

By Steve Mansfield
STAR RATING:
#####
WORDED RATING:

Very useful as a groove and beat resource and a site reading exercise to boot.
TARGET AUDIENCE:
Beginner onwards

PUBLISHED BY:
Cherry lane music company
DESCRIPTION:

No jokes there really are 1001 drum grooves in this book neatly organised by genre. Rock and funk (40 pages), blues and jazz (31 pages), ethnic (10 pages), afro-Cuban and Caribbean (20 pages). Sometimes the variation between one and another are slight though but all in all this book is a fantastic resource.
