Helps take the oddness out of mastering playing in uncommon time signatures.

Drummer's Guide to Odd Time Signatures was created because more and more popular drummers today use uncommon time signatures to give their music a unique sound, and this is your chance to join them. The practice goes back to the 1960s, with Dave Brubeck and The Beatles, and continued with artists like King Crimson, Rush, Sting, Metallica, Tool, and Radiohead. To many musicians, these meters are complex and mysterious. However, Drummer's Guide to Odd Time Signatures makes it clear that nothing could be farther from the truth. These lessons break it down so all time signatures, no matter how "odd," are easy to understand since they are simply meters with an odd number of beats to the bar. Drummer's Guide to Odd Time Signatures will help you understand how to hear and feel these meters and to use the time signatures in a variety of musical situations and genres. A CD demonstrating the musical examples in the book is included.
