Drum Kit Coordination Reference - Funk-Fusion Exercises
This collection presents fifteen sets of coordination exercises across nearly 70 pages of binary rhythmic groupings in the funk-fusion style. Each set presents a specific cymbal pattern, accompanied by the possible 16th note permutations of the bass drum and snare drum against that pattern.
Binary exercises like those in this volume are applicable to binary time signatures, from 2/4 upwards. Each exercise is two quarter notes long, covering back beat, funk, latin, and fusion applications and a near unlimited number of possible combinations.
This is not a conceptual book, but a visual reference of coordination patterns designed both as a teaching aid, and as a student guide to the most practical and fundamental groove coordination patterns.
