Updated to incorporate 50 additional grooves, this encyclopedic book and two-CD set comprises more than 450 musical examples in standard notation, showing grooves and practical variations. Overviews of the history and development of almost all popular music styles are covered alongside innumerable helpful performance tips. The two accompanying CDs feature performances of nearly 200 of the grooves, including each and every number one style example, all performed both with and with no click track. Styles covered include blues, rock, jazz, reggae, country, klezmer, ska, samba, punk, surf, heavy metal, latin rock, and funk; virtually each and every style a performing drummer will ever wish to play is in there. This revised second edition also includes an up to date bibliography and discography, in addition to more historical details about the person styles.
