The Total Blues Drummerby Scot Little Bihlman

Online Review The Total Blues Drummer BookbookBOOK/CD

It’s hard to imagine a more informative and fun blues drumming book than this one. It’s a celebration of the genre, from Memphis to Chicago to Texas. Bihlman starts with stick grip and how to tune drums for blues music, and finishes with advice on hauling a drumkit around. He strives to provide a sense of history as well, discussing some of the masters and classic licks. He gets into details like ghost notes, discusses blues structure, and demonstrates some odd-time blues grooves as well. And the CD is a good play-along for drummers of all styles. Bihlman has a very clear and thoughtful game plan. (Alfred) Robin Tolleson
