Mastering The Tables Of Time
On the shuttle ride to the airport, a piece of luggage fell and struck me. (No harm done!) However, the incident started a conversation with another passenger, David Stanoch, author of Mastering The Tables Of Time. Upon departing the bus, David presented me with a copy of his amazing book. Whether beginner or pro, drumset player or percussionist, material abounds to challenge and improve your skills. You’ll find exercises with applications for playing time, coordination, polyrhythms, and soloing. http://www.rhythmelodic.com/
