Mel Bay Blues Drums Method Book and CD

Blues Drums, within the School of the Blues Lesson Series, covers these subjects: the history of blues drumming; choosing your instrument and getting your sound; exercises for development of technique (sticking and foot patterns specific to playing blues); blues shuffles and swing beats, slow blues, ballads and the triplet groove (12/8 time); blues rhumba, calypso beats and samba feel; two-beat/cut time; early rock 'n' roll and surf beats; new orleans, soul and funk influences; and build-ups and fills.

This book is accompanied by a CD recording of all examples played on the drums with the backing of the School of the Blues All-Star Band. It is recommended that you also purchase Blues Drums Play-Along Trax to have full-length play-along trax for you to apply what you learn in this book.
