Bailey - Wrist Twisters: A Musical Approach to Snare Drumming

Title: Wrist Twisters A Musical Approach to Snare Drumming

Author: Elden C. "Buster" Bailey

Compiled and Edited: Scott Stevens

"….It’s a book for those who want to pursue snare drumming seriously.  While the ideas and techniques in this book are directed primarily toward advanced high school and college percussionists, it’s my hope that professional players and instructors of students of all ages will find some concepts worthy of consideration within these pages.  ...An unhindered, relaxed snare drum technique is going to give you a greater freedom of musical expression and self-confidence in your playing, and then it will be possible to have more fun.  That’s what the whole thing is about." – Buster Bailey
