Description

Ever noticed that many of the world’s most influential drummers have a deep understanding of music and also know how to play another instrument? Modern Drummer founder and publisher Ron Spagnardi has, and with this  book & audio pack, he sets out to teach drummers the essentials of theory and harmony using a keyboard. He covers: major scales; basic chord structure; inversions; diatonic harmony; chord voicings, extensions and progressions; and more vital topics.

Throughout this book we’ll be discussing many things you may have heard of before, but never really under­stood. We’ll be shedding light on key signatures, scales, intervals, inversions, the Roman numeral system, dia­tonic harmony, chord structure, progressions, voicings, alterations, extensions, and more. We’ll start out with the basics and gradually proceed to a more advanced level. Sure, it’s a lot to absorb. But it should be no more difficult than when you had to master the double-stroke roll or develop your hand and foot coordination.
