Ultimate Realistic Rock

The best-selling drumset book in the history of rock drumming.

Drumming legend Carmine Appice presents his all-time classic and best-selling drumset book, Ultimate Realistic Rock.

In addition to the classic information on basic rock rhythms and polyrhythms, linear rudiments and groupings, hi-hat and double bass drum exercises, and shuffle rhythms and syncopation exercises, the book now includes over 20 new pages and audio of fresh material. The recordings have been re-mastered, with updates including three new play-along tracks and audio examples that correspond with the new sections on odd-time signatures, hands and feet combinations, and rave/dance drumming.
