Pickering - Mel Bay’s Studio/Jazz Cookbook

Title: Mel Bay’s Studio/Jazz Cookbook

Author: John Pickering

"The demands placed on the control and manual dexterity of the contemporary drum set player, particularly in the 'jazz' idiom, are enormous.  Today’s drummer is expected to have developed the ability to co-ordinate the movements of his hands and feet to a degree that would have been thought to be unrealistic a few short years ago.  The most effective method of dealing with the mystery of drum set co-ordination is to isolate the four most basic elements and systematically examine the performance skills demanded of each of these parts of the over all instrument." – J. Pickering
