100 Essential Drumset Lessonsbk/Audio Online Reviews
It will make you a better player no matter how good you are-or think you are.
Every drummer and/or drumming instructor should have this book. A thorough teaching compendium-packed full of knowledgeable information especially beneficial for those who don't have a teacher or instructor
This book gives you an terrific overview of drumset styles and how they fit with different genres of music. The author explains the essence of each style & genre, and then shows beginning, intermediate, and advanced examples of how to play in that style. He also uses a plain English approach to explaining about playing ahead or behind the beat, how to construct your own drum parts, soloing, etc. This is a book you'll come back to often as you take the journey of playing drumset. It is not meant to be a tour of cutting edge interpretations of styles, but rather a great overview of what makes different music genres sound the way they do -- and how drums support that genre. Very useful.
If you are looking for a book with revolutionary concepts leave it but if you are looking for a sort of drums encyclopedia ..O'Mahoney did it for you! Almost every aspect of the drumming has covered, maybe not in depht ( the title tells no lies) but each lesson is a very good start point with very useful introduction ( I appreciated it a lot). Being O'Mahoney a jazz drummer the jazz section seems to be the most accurate but I think every drummer could appreciate it (Blast Beats ? Three lessons!). The CD contains 318 (!!) tracks including play along. I love this book.
Focus on the 100 essential lessons in this book and you will be a well rounded drummer indeed! Provides excellent point of departure for any style.
