Drummers today are required to be proficient at multiple musical styles, many of which require four-limb independence. The exercises in this book will aid students in preparing themselves to be fully independent with all four limbs, while learning different musical styles. Students also benefit from the ability to subdivide the beat with these exercises, allowing one to the "inside" the pulse. This results in not only developing four-way limb independence, but also improved time-keeping and feel.
Out On All Limbs: Duplet Stickings is indispensable for improvising drummers to acquire the independence to accomodate and further develop their creativity. "Groove" players will find the exercises useful to develop their own unique and original fills. Double bass-drum players will note that the exercises require both right and left feet lead, allowing the development of their technical facility for their style of music. The exercises are also an inegral facet of learning the art of "linear" drumming.
There are 2136 exercises in the book, all with a duplet subdivision. 2 CDs are included with 192 tracks.
