Dave Weckl - Contemporary Drummer + One
Dave Weckl Contemporary Drummer + One PDF. With two CDs of demonstration and playalong tracks, authentic studio drum charts and a comprehensive book of analysis and commentary, this pack will help you find out just how Dave accompanies artists as diverse as Chick Corea, Michael Brecker, Steve Lukather and John Patitucci. If you want to learn how to play in odd times especially 7 The Island Magic tune and description is like nothing else on the planet to understand various ways to count and feel 7/8. There is so much effort in this product it is amazing. The real key is Dave's thought process written in the pages before you even start playing and recording. For a serious player with an eye to being a real professional this is a must to go through.
It is for the more advanced or at a minimum "intermediate" drummer. It is pretty advanced music, very syncopated. The booklet explains / breaks down the songs section by section, and Dave explains some of what he played on each tune, mainly the "key" areas / transitions and grooves. Each song includes a fold out chart, loose not bound to the book (to a book).
The cd contains the original recordings with Dave's playing and another WITHOUT any drumming so you can play along to them.
It is instructional as well, as far as breaking down what Dave played on these songs, but it is not a progressively instructional book. It assumes you are already at the level of musicianship and as a drummer, to be able to actually play these tunes.
