DRUMMING IS A LOT MORE THAN JUST GROOVES AND FILLS…
The ability to ‘play-along’ with other musicians and backing tracks is an essential part of being a drummer. This book combines exercises from Drum Syllabus Term 1 into short pieces. Each piece comes with it’s own backing track, all of which cover a wide range of musical styles.
Term 1 Companion
The Play-Alongs use exercises exclusively from Drum Syllabus Term 1. These 20 Play-Alongs show just some of the phrases and variations that can be created using the material from Term 1.
Fully Notated Examples of All 20 Play-Alongs
Every play-along is notated in full. These are easy to follow, with each sticking shown. The twenty play-alongs are broken down into sections. An overview is provided at the start of each section.
Tracking your progress not only helps you direct your practice more efficiently but acts as a source of encouragement as well.
Fully Notated Bass Guitar Backing Tracks
As well as the full play-along tracks 20 bass only play-alongs are also provided. These are ideal for developing the skills required to form a solid rhythm section. Notation of every bass part is also provided.
