How to Play the Drums: Instruction To Become And Being A Creative Person, A Musician, An Artist: Skills Drummer Should Master (Paperback)
Like most tasks in life, the first steps are often the most challenging. Just by finding this guide, you've demonstrated that you have an interest in playing the drums and a determination to learn more about them. Your enthusiasm for the drum set will be what motivates you to put in the practice and reach your full potential as a drummer, even if you've never touched a pair of sticks before. The book is an invitation to take a break from watching the YouTube drummer contests and reading the "get better fast" drumming websites, and to directing attention back to yourself, if for but a moment. Making music and playing drums does not start at the tip of your drumstick, not even with the motion before you strike a drum. It really starts with the desire, actually with the compulsion, to make music and to play. This is an open invitation to explore a different approach to playing music and a share of the author's experiences.
