Contemporary Rock Styles for the Drums breaks down Rock into fifteen important sub-styles. For each sub-style, you get a comprehensive lesson centering on a fully notated “chart” of the music on the CD. The CD contains a performance demo and then a version without the drums for you to play-along. With the sound of the music in your ears, you can study and practice the technical aspects performing the rhythms of each style.

Each style section contains:

  • Historical references and background
  • Useful information and explanations about the sub-style
  • Notated musical examples of the style for drums
  • Additional exercises and alternative variations
  • Important performance tips
  • Discographies and Bibliographies
  • Demonstration performances and play-along tracks on the CD
