World Fusion Drumming
By Skip Hadden
The author of this book, Skip Hadden, uses his experience in performing with artists such as John Abercrombie, Jimmy Smith, Sonny Stitt, Weather Report, and others to bring us his take on World Fusion Drumming. In addition to his practical playing experience, Skip has been a professor of percussion at Berklee College of Music in Boston since 1982.
In this book, Skip separates each main fusion style into three basic components; The Beat (the basic rhythmic pattern), The Body (using the "Mix N Match" system), and The Brain (putting it all together).
Let's Check it out.
The Beat, The Body, The Brain
Also included in each main style chapter are valuable lists of listening examples, video examples, and additional references.
World Fusion Drumming: The Bottom Line
I recommend it for drummers of all experience levels from beginners through advanced.
This book and dual audio CD combination, from Alfred Publishing, is definitely worth its retail price of $19.95. As always, it can be purchased at a additional discount at:
