Jost Nickel's Fill Book
A Systematic & Fun Approach to Fills
Format: Book, CD & Online Video
This book is for anybody who wants to discover the big, wide world of drum fills. You‘ll find plenty of fill concepts to inspire you and enable you to understand the essential theory behind them so you can create your own drum fills.
Step by step, Jost introduces rhythmic concepts that can be used universally on different levels and in every musical situation. He presents orchestration ideas, phrasings, and exercises focusing on dynamics and accents. He shows the different subdivisions that are essential for drum-fill playing and fills for binary and ternary grooves such as shuffles.
Ideas on switch & path orchestration, diddle kicks, and clockwise & counterclockwise playing will enrich your drumming, as will step–hit–hi-hat, hand & foot rolls, cymbal chokes, stick shots, and many more.
JOST NICKEL‘S FILL BOOK comes with an MP3 CD so you can hear many of the recorded fills in different tempos.
Additionally, for those fills where you need to see how to move, there are twenty videos online. A 12-page insert containing reading texts completes the concept of this book.
