The Commandments of R & B Drumming

A Comprehensive Guide to Soul, Funk & Hip-Hop

The Commandments of R&B Drumming, by Zoro, is a historical and in-depth study of R&B drumming, from soul to funk to hip-hop, written by world-renowned session & live drummer Zoro (Lenny Kravitz, Bobby Brown, Sean Lennon). Topics include practice tips, developing the funky bass drum and hi-hat, creating and playing with loops, and what are considered the Ten Commandments of Soul, Funk, and Hip-Hop (the top ten recordings from each era). This book not only pays homage to the R&B drummers of the past, but gives the reader a fortune of invaluable information both in history and playing.

This newly revised 10th anniversary edition features updated information and loads of new photos and album artwork throughout. It includes a play-along audio featuring various styles of R&B, and also includes an R&B history tree. 160 pages covering every imaginable angle, nook, and cranny of R&B! The book was voted the #1 educational drum book in the world by Modern Drummer magazine’s Readers Poll and also deemed “a must-have for the soulful drummer,” by Traps Magazine.
