(Percussion). The genre fusion, as the name implies, is a blend of many styles and influences. This book and CD utilize four tunes as a basis to show how this fusion-blending process can occur and expose you to major trends that exist. You are given unique step by step approaches to developing “fused” feels that aren’t just superficial pasting-together of styles, but in point of fact new grooves of your making. In addition, there are lots of agility exercises that will help you reach a high level of musicianship. Each and every of the style-evolutions and exercises is fully notated in the book and performed on the CD. These lessons culminate in a tune that accommodates what you have learned. The CD incorporates a demonstration performance of the tune, followed by a version of the tune without the drums so that you can play-along. The book provides a drum chart and lead sheet.
