Gary Chaffee – Sticking Patterns

In Sticking Patterns, Gary’s unique approach to the use of stickings is explored. Completely different from the rudiments, Gary’s system is designed specifically for drum set performance, both for creating time feels as well as for filling and soloing. Also included are sections on accented single strokes, as well as the use of double strokes on the set. The four-volume Patterns series by Gary Chaffee is one of the most contemporary and comprehensive drum methods available. Endorsed by many of today’s top players, the books cover a wide range of materials, and will help students develop the kinds of skills necessary for drum set performance. The Patterns books are designed to be used in any order, or in combination with one another. A must for the serious student.
Having trouble being creative behind the kit? Tired of being too repetitive n predictable? Then look no further. This book works wonders and opens up a new world of possibilities and ideas. It truly is a great book for all levels.
The material in the book is presented in a very straight forward manner and the CD included really helps “visualize” how the exercises are supposed to sound. This is not a beginners book. But once you get to the level where you can read the rhythms the material is highly valuable and versatile. It will change the way you think and hear the instrument.
Chaffee teaches the elements and lets you make the music. His stickings of singles/double combinations lead to traditional and innovative accents and super-imposed rhythmic patterns, which translate directly to his rhythm/meter, time-functioning, technique, and linear concepts. A basic food group for drummers.

Format: PDF + CD (mp3), 108 pages.
