Overview

George Lawrence Stone's Stick Control is the original classic, often called the bible of drumming. In 1993, Modern Drummer magazine named the book one of the top 25 books of all-time. In the words of the author, it is the ideal drum book for improving "control, speed, flexibility, touch, rhythm, lightness, delicacy, power, endurance, preciseness of execution, and muscular coordination," with extra attention given to the development of the weak hand. This indispensable reference book for drummers of all types includes hundreds of basic to advanced-level rhythms, moving through categories of single-beat combinations, triplets, short roll combinations, flam beats, flam triplets, dotted notes, and short roll progressions.

    Comments about Alfred Stick Control for the Snare Drummer (Book):

    In 2011 I suffered a mild concussion which led to me losing 30% of my motor skills. I met Mike Terrana during the Beauty and the Beat concert tour with Tarja Turunen. Mike is an extraordinary drummer, I asked him how I could learn some of his techniques, he immediately pointed me toward this book. I played drums in middle school band and have never had formal training. This book is so easy to follow and the left/right sticking instructions are right in front of you, even the untrained can be trained using this book! I now travel with a drum pad and spend about 45 minutes practicing every day. One thing you will come to realize, as you work with this book, your sticking skills will improve, and your own motor skills will also improve, with hard work. This books is well worth the purchase.

    A classic book that alot of modern pros use.

    Comments about Alfred Stick Control for the Snare Drummer (Book):

    I was inspired to pick this up after I read that Danny Carey used it for his double bass development. I was amazed to find out so many other great drummers have also used this book. It blows me away that not that many drummers really talk about it. Maybe because its such an old book. Dont let that fool you Just cuz its old doesn't mean its not good. This book freaking rocks. I have been playing for 20 plus years and I settled into a lot of familiar stickings. I already have noticed a difference in a week of working in this book. It has even inspired new ideas for playing. Im picking up accents and rebounds next.
