Ed Roscetti - Drummer's Guide To Odd Meters
Ed Roscetti Drummer's Guide To Odd Meters PDF download. In this course designed from MI core curriculum programs, Ed Roscetti unlocks the secrets of odd time signatures, covering studies in 3/4, 5/4, 3/8, 5/8, 6/8, 7/8, 9/8 and other odd-time meters. Includes complete song charts with play-along CD tracks, rhythm guides and detailed analysis, the Five Steps to Musicality and more! This approach helps the student and professional drummer to develop a library of rhythmic ideas for grooving, turnarounds to outline phrases, and soloing. I highly recommend Ed's book and CD.
A logical, thorough and practical analysis and application of odd meter on the Drumset! Great play-a-long tunes! Alternative grooves and worksheets make you think. Highly recommended for the drummer desiring to expand his vocabulary beyond Common time!
The book breaks each time signature down into several sections. It starts with simple patterns played by your hands, then on a snare, then on a snare with ostinato bass drum parts. Once these simple exercises are mastered at various tempi, the book takes a small number of examples and places them on the drum set. Each time signature has several drum set playing examples and a song chart. Each exercise and song is on a CD that comes with the book; each exercise is played twice through and each song has a version with drums and a version without that can be played with.
If terms such as ostinato confuse you, or you don't know what a song chart is or how to read it, this book is probably not for you. Odd time signatures cannot be learned overnight; only those with the mindset of a serious musician who are willing to invest time following the directions exactly will learn from this book. The author also expects whoever is using this book to write out their own riffs in each time signature, and to apply those riffs to drum set. This is an essential part of the book; it makes the student think of odd time signatures both technically and as grooves, and allows the student to develop their own drum parts.
With that said, if you are willing to invest the time in this book and want to learn, it is essential to have in your library.
