A Funky Primer

By Charles Dowd

A guide for all those looking to rock! Funky Primer is full of drumset exercises laid out in progressive sequences a la stick control style.  Designed to help build coordination, strength and independence in the limbs, the exercises in this book are inspired from, or have inspired, countless grooves from rock, funk, soul, and blues grooves.  Additional instructions and exercises are included to build double-pedal chops and hand to hand coordination.  Play it straight or swung, these grooves are as useful as they are fun.
