THE DRUMSET SOLOIST
The Drum Set Soloist was written to provide drummers with the practice material to approach any solo, in any style, with ease. Techniques such as trading, playing over vamps and playing over kicks (or figures) are examined, demonstrated and made available in a CD play-along format.
From the Preface:
“Have you ever had to take a drum solo and found yourself scared to death? Often times drummers are called upon to solo and they are caught basically unprepared. I’ve found that many drummers don’t PRACTICE soloing and for that reason they lack the confidence and the concept for soloing in a variety of settings. Soloing brings together three different aspects of drumming: technique, style and reading.
…I hope this book will challenge you, inspire you and, most of all, let you create and improvise without the pressure of a live gig.”
