Rating 8 out of 10. "In an extremely user-friendly and focused book, Famularo and Bergamini give the reader an outline for developing a full complement of expressive tools. Artistic expression is the concept that they embrace. Versatility in all styles is the goal. To get you there, the authors employ cool flip-page illustrations of various strokes, discuss the musicality of the instrument, and cover building a solo to display melody, harmony, rhythm, dynamics, and song arrangement. Elsewhere they give proper weight to flams and ruffs, creating a good balance between the hands, playing odd times with precision, and firing off accents with the hands while keeping the feet free. A lot of this information may seem basic - and it is. But its the basis of a great foundation in drums."
