A Contemporary Approach to Playing the Drums. Drumset 101 is a contemporary approach to playing the drums by veteran authors Dave Black and Steve Houghton. Inside, aspiring drummers will find in-depth, easy-to-understand introductions to such topics as groove patterns, snare drum & bass drum independence, and drum fills in context.
