This exciting and critically-acclaimed book by yfriday's Dez Minto mixes direct drum teaching with a practical chance to apply the learning to drumless backing tracks on the CD from bands such as ‘yfriday’, ‘Titus’, ‘The Steels ’ and ‘Jane Kitson’. Alongside the backing tracks, the accompanying CD contains all of the grooves and fills explained within the book. The book & CD combination covers many of the fundamental areas of drumming including:



  • Grooves

  • Fills

  • Dynamics

  • Practising

  • Playing live

  • Recording

  • Playing to click tracks


Ideal for new beginners and established drummers alike. The interactive layout of the book mixes direct drum teaching with the opportunity to apply the new learning to the 'drumless' backing tracks on the accompanying CD.
This book is perfect for the player who has always wanted to learn drum score but has been put off by staring at pages and pages of notes. The book presents a varity of grooves, fills etc in drum score in an amazingly accessable way.
The 'drumless' backing tracks also get rid of the boring, structureless practises and bring life to rehearsing.

The book consists of some ideas for grooves and fills, with general advice on how they might be used. While some of the fill ideas are helpful, overall, there is nothing particularly new here.

The accompanying CD gives demos of each groove and fill, but all the say 8th note grooves are one track, so if you want to repeat just the 3rd groove in the book, you can't just repeat that groove to learn it. It would have been better to put each groove and fill on separate tracks, then you could put them on repeat play.

I didn't find the other tracks on the CD (from a variety of artists) to be either engaging or inspiring and have not used it.

As a beginner drummer I had hoped to get some inspiration for different grooves and fills. However, the book is very light on instruction and inspiration and the accompanying CD is not particularly helpful. All of the rhythyms etc. are grouped together into single tracks, so if you want to replay say fill 3 you have to manually rewind to that part of the track. It would have been better to have had one fill per track, in that way you could repeat play it to make it easier to learn.

I think the Musicademy worship drums video lessons are a lot better value and provide better instruction. I would highly recommend them.
