The Drumset Musician

The musical approach to learning drumset.

The Drumset Musician, by Rod Morgenstein and Rick Mattingly, contains hundreds of beats and fills that will enable you to develop the necessary coordination and technique to handle a wide variety of rock, pop, funk, blues, and country songs These are not just exercises; the patterns in this book have been used on countless recordings spanning several decades and can be applied to actual songs.

In addition, The Drumset Musician goes beyond just teaching you isolated beats and fills You’ll also learn how to use them to create drum parts to songs. Each of the songs is presented twice—once with a drum part played by Rod, so you can hear how the drums fit in with the song Then there’s another version of the same song, but without drums, so you can try playing the same part Rod played or you can create your own drum arrangement.
