What Books or DVD's do you consider to be "Bibles" of drumming?
Interesting point can you elaborate?Mastering the Tables of Time - David Stanoch
that being said ... I don't think any musician should consider any book a "Bible" of anything ... they are simple tools ... our Bibles should come through our ears not via text on a page
Yep The Drum Tuning Bible is a mine of info, not just on tuning but how and why drums sound the way they do and what to look out for to get your drums sounding the way you want.
Really, there are only so many ways to work on general drumming skills. There are however many ways to approach the same thing. Many of these books represent just tools that are available for the teacher to use, modify or expand upon to fit each student. Many are used in ways that are way deeper and very different from their first intended use.A lot of the books mentioned here are obvious must-haves, but I don't think there will ever be one singular drum bible. Rather, I would venture to say that many of the books mentioned on this thread, plus a whole lot more make up a drumming encyclopedia (for those of us who are old enough to remember our parents paying out the ass for an encyclopedia Britannica); a compendium of drumming knowledge.
