Student Reviews

This book explains traditional basic second-line styles, and applies them to drum set. For almost all of the grooves and exercises that Moore presents, he starts by explaining the origin of the groove (who started it, where, why was it important), and then applies a basic drum set comp to show both instruments working together. The grooves then proceed to get more challenging all while keeping the original groove in pocket. At the end of each idea presented, the CD that the book comes with has a specified track at the end that the groove will compliment. The interesting thing is that the tracks on the CD do not include drums on them. Only the other instruments. This is a specialty book to instruct the player how to play with different New Orleans styles, this is not a book on how to teach fundamentals of drum set.
