Polyrhythmic Possibilities 2

Share This


Polyrhythmic Possibilities 2, by Henrique De Almeida, follows the direction of the Polyrhythmic Possibilities, Vol.1, originally released in 2011, at the same time being a direct extension of the teachings of Gary Chaffee.

The materials presented here were originally developed and designed to be used in conjunction with live drum set classes, private instructions, clinics and Master Classes at The Berklee College of Music, Boston MA, USA., and at the author’s drumming schools.

“Through all those years one of the biggest challenges to me when teaching Gary Chaffee’s “Rhythm & Meter Patterns” and “Sticking Patterns” to drum set players was that most materials available were originally intended for snare drum. To make the concepts and applications more adaptable to popular music, I have taken many ideas showed to me by Gary Chaffee and simplified them to meters like 4/4, 3/4, 5/4, 7/4 and 9/8. There are no sudden meter changes here. This makes life a lot easier for drummers because I want my students to be able to play everything in this book with a steady pulse, great feel and groove, despite the complexity”.
