A follow-up to the popular first volume, Open-Handed Playing, Vol. 2: A Step Beyond gives you a groundbreaking step-by-step approach to incorporating this cutting-edge style into your playing. By using linear and rudimental approaches, this book will even help a drummer who has always played with crossed hands. This is possible because the presented patterns will be familiar to both right- and left-handed players. This method also provides an incredibly creative and funky set of new tools to build the drumming vocabulary. The included CD features 8 play-along tracks.
"This is an interesting and challenging book suitable for the intermediate to advanced player, regardless of their leading hand."
- DRUMMER magazine
"This is a great resource that will definitely take your drumming up another notch and help untie knots and bad habits we drummers often develop. Four and a Half Stars!"
DRUMscene Magazine

"If you've never considered open-handed drumming before, this book offers a very strong argument for it."
-Michael Dawson, Modern Drummer.
