Rick Latham is frequently known as one of the crucial true masters of linear drumming as we are aware of it today. He literally wrote the book when he penned his modern classic Advanced Funk Studies. His second book Recent Drumset Techniques is now also considered a valuable addition to any drum library and is without doubt one of the most complete sources of linear techniques available. This text is filled with hundreds of hip and interesting exercises that are easily incorporated into Recent music. Accompanied by four audio CDs of Rick performing every exercise in the book, this can be a powerful package in an effort to affect your drumming perpetually.
