Online Review Mel Bay's Modern Drum Method Grade 2 Book bookBOOK

Picking up where Grade 1 left off, the second volume in MD contributor Steve Fidyk’s series continues to illustrate standard drumset concepts, with an emphasis on dotted notes and rests, multiple beat variations, and fills. In-depth examples include “Swing Beats With Double Tom Backbeat On 4” and “16th Note Beats With Snare On 2 And The A Of 3.” A handy drumset history is covered, along with lists of famous tracks in the styles of the exercises presented, from Miles Davis to Rush. A forty-six-track MP3 CD rounds out a useful, satisfying package to help your reading and overall performance. (Mel Bay) Ilya Stemkovsky
