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.

A classic book that alot of modern pros use.

By Brian Baker

from Oklahoma City OK

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.
