This outstanding book includes the best from the two original titles in the Drum Lessons with the Greats series. In addition to the in-depth lessons in the book, two lesson-matching CDs are included so every percussionist can study and hear the grooves, fills, techniques, and concepts of Tim Alexander, Kenny Aronoff, Gregg Bissonette, Peter Erskine, Neil Peart, Mike Portnoy, Steve Smith, and Dave Weckl. These dynamic players reveal their secrets to soloing, playing fills, odd-time playing, warm-ups, double-bass grooves, polyrhythms, and more. Sticking patterns, grooves, ostinato patterns, and developing a touch on the instrument are also among the many topics covered. The CDs feature performances by the drummers themselves. Now that you have all these lessons in one great source, so open up the book, put on your headphones, and get busy!
