Soloing is often neglected in the drumset player's routine. "The Drumset Soloist" was written to provide drummers with the practice material to approach any solo, in any style, with ease. As the book progresses, through many musical styles, the player will find that he/she quickly builds the vocabulary and confidence needed in soloing. Techniques such as trading, playing over kicks (or figures) are examined, demonstrated and made available in CD play-along format. This allows the performer to study the styles, hear the styles, and then practice soloing over the styles with a real band. This book challenges, inspires and, most of all, lets the drumset soloist create and improvise without the pressure of a live gig. ©1996. Book & Compact Disc.
