The Snare Drummer’s Real Book


The Snare Drummer’s Real Book $9.99

The Snare Drummer’s Real Book, by Steve Langone, is a collection of rudimental snare drum etudes based on melodies written by the following iconic composers/ musicians: George Gershwin, Charlie Parker, Duke Ellington, Dave Brubeck, Sonny Rollins, Benny Golson, Thelonious Monk, Wes Montgomery, Nat Adderly and Dizzy Gillespie.

The etudes in this book are based on the expressive articulations found in the rudiments, combined with some of the most popular jazz standards of the last century. The ultimate goal is to become familiar with the rudiments, melodies and style so you may freely improvise and express your own musical ideas creatively and clearly.

The etudes in this book will be helpful to drummers familiar with the rudiments but have not yet applied them to a melody or a melodic concept. This book will also benefit drummers who may be able to sing melodies but have not explored the expressiveness of the rudiments.
