This book is designed to teach the user about many aspects of contemporary playing, and the songs are in different styles leaning towards rock and funk, including heavy rock, funk, rock ballad, pop, and prog rock. Featuring the drums, all the charts include fun and challenging rhythmic figures, and some contain solo drum breaks. Because of this, all the songs are ideal for public performance at recitals, concerts, drum clinics, and similar events. Bergamini designed this package with performance in mind, including a CD that contains each track in three different versions: his original album drum performance, the song minus drums with click (for practice and to simulate the in-studio experience), and the song minus drums with no click which is for public performance—and to test the user’s accuracy! The ballads in the package also contain the track with a soft shaker in place of a click, allowing for a time reference that is more subtle.

Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced pro, you’ll learn how to navigate these challenging pieces through the fully notated examples. Or, you can add your own personality to the music. Practice your chart reading skills by following along with the included lead sheets. Learn to apply new ideas by studying the notated grooves and fills.

Along with the charts and transcriptions, Joe includes an in-depth description of the concepts and inspiration that accompanies each song. You’ll see how Joe approaches the while showing you ways to apply your own personal style.

You’ll get to play in many styles from rock to reggae, ballads to double bass, funk to 12/8 and more! There is an included mp3 disc with all 10 songs included that you can load onto your own device to play along to. Also included are 7 bonus video files of Dom Famularo performing a song from the disc.
