a book that lives up to its title. notations for stereotypical beats of many genres. most drummers will know these patterns already, but they aren't the target audience.
...but I don't always see the resemblance. like, there were 2 beats for harvey mason, and i thought at least one of them would sound like chameleon, or another song he's famous for. But they left me scratching my head.
even recreated this one with 606 sounds (one of the machines covered in the book). sounds cool, but it doesn't remind me harvey mason.
does anyone recognize this?
author died in 07. seems like he was a big deal in drum education, in addition to writing many books on the subject.
the music trade, especially music education publishing, is a very small world. just a few people make it all work.
thanks for the book, sandy
