(Percussion). Designed as a companion to Todd Sucherman’s award-winning first DVD release, Methods and Mechanics , this book sheds new light at the playing and concepts of some of the exciting drummers of our time. Built around note-for-note transcriptions by drummer/educator Brad Schlueter, the book also includes detailed statement from both Todd and Brad about the concepts contained in Todd’s playing. Included on this package are 8 songs, 5 breathtaking solos, and several of Todd’s custom drum lessons (highlighting his approach to double bass drumming and hybrid rudiments at the kit). The entire songs and solos are included at the CD, in addition to drumless play-along mixes of all four of the Taylor Mills songs. Usable without or with the original DVD release, this book serves as a complete package to analyze, practice, and keep in mind one of the most concepts employed by Todd with artists such as Styx, Brian Wilson, Jerry Goodman, Peter Cetera, Brian Culbertson, Spinal Tap, Michael Bolton, The Falling Wallendas, Eric Marienthal, and lots of others.
