World-Beat & Funk Grooves: Playing a Drumset the Easy Way

Length: 116 pages1 hour


If you've got a drumset and you know how to make the basic strokes, you're ready to get started. This book uses an ingenious method that makes complex rhythms magically emerge out of simple sequences of body movements. Within days you'll be playing world-beat and funk grooves that usually take months to master. The method is based on a style of playing called "linear drumming." "Linear" simply means you only play one note at a time. That's why it's great for beginners. Instead of learning separate parts for your hands and feet and then layering one on top of the other, you only have to learn a single pattern that moves note by note from limb to limb. It's as easy as connecting the dots. Please note: audio files of the CDs that came with the print version of this book are not included in this ebook version (but are available separately).
