Written by drummer/educator Dave DiCenso, the Universal Rhythms for Drumset: The Keys to Unlock a World of Creativity workbook is designed to help demystify the drummer's creative process. Working from the notion that the majority of Western music is built upon five simple rhythmic phrases, DiCenso's drum tutorials offer creative tools that demonstrate how drummers can identify, interpret, and manipulate this five-rhythm alphabet in order to improve their understanding of rhythm as a language and their ability to speak it on a set of drums.
By applying an innovative eight-step "mastery system" to each drum lesson, the reader is challenged to go beyond muscle memory and improve cerebral skills such as pulse/space/shape awareness within any groove, fill, embellishment, or solo; getting ideas to flow seamlessly from mind to limbs to drums; understanding the space other musicians occupy to make informed musical choices and create a deeper band pocket.
Drum lessons include over 500 exercises covering 28 drumming styles all based upon only five rhythms, and all examples in the book are performed by the author on the included MP3 CD.
