Groove Systems, by Tim Carman, utilizes patterns directly transcribed from 10 unique styles of music as a vehicle for both coordination development and an increase in stylistic vocabulary. The Groove System encompasses thousands of functional and musical coordination exercises. Each chapter contains a brief history of the style of music, as well as a list of the key drummers, artists, and grooves that exemplify that style. The Groove System follows and contains vocabulary for each isolated “instrument” of the drum set.
