Summary

"This book for the beginning drummer uses an ingenious method that allows complex rhythms to magically emerge from simple sequences of body movements. Within days, the student will be playing world-beat and funk grooves that normally take months to master. The book's method is based on a style of playing called linear drumming, which simply means playing one note at a time. Instead of having to learn separate parts for the hands and feet and then layering them on top of each other, the student only needs to learn a single pattern that moves note by note from limb to limb."
