Universal Rhythms for Drummers

The Keys to Unlock a World of Creativity, Book and CD

Written by drummer/educator Dave DiCenso, Universal Rhythms for Drumset is a workbook with a concept designed to help demystify the drummer's creative process. Working from the notion that the majority of Western music is built upon five simple rhythmic phrases, DiCenso offers creative tools that demonstrate how to identify, interpret, and manipulate this five-rhythm alphabet in order to improve one's understanding of rhythm as a language and one's ability to speak it on a set of drums. By applying an innovative eight-step "mastery system" to each lesson, the reader is challenged to go beyond muscle memory and improve cerebral skills such as pulse/space/shape awareness within any groove, fill, embellishment, or solo; getting ideas to flow seamlessly from mind to limbs to drums; understanding the space other musicians occupy to make informed musical choices and create a deeper band pocket. Lessons that include over 500 exercises covering 28 drumming styles are all based upon only five rhythms, and all examples in the book are performed by the author on the included MP3 CD.

"This book is amazing!" - Thomas Pridgen : "I Love it!" John - "J.R." Robinson : "Itz mad cool" - Chris Dave : "I love this book, it is great" - Gerald Heyward : "I found it really informative, useful and visually interesting." : Clayton Cameron Drummers are athletes. Playing the drums well requires the skilled use of the entire body. Unfortunately, most books on drumming focus exclusively on what notes should be played, and give little or no attention to the how they should be played. This leaves drummers with a problem. When you misunderstand technique, you will experience frustration when new techniques aren't as easy to learn as they should be, limitation in what you can do because the techniques don't work like they should, and injury when the extra wear and tear caused by bad technique builds up. The solution is simple: Anatomy of Drumming is your guide to moving well, learning faster and avoiding injury. When you understand the mechanics of moving and how they apply to the drums, you will know for yourself how techniques work, so you can use them effectively. Anatomy of Drumming is both a description of how the body works and a prescription for how to move better. Starting with the mechanics of movement, Anatomy of Drumming takes you through what you need to know about the body and how to use it effectively. It covers the basics of anatomy and the physics of drums; how to set up the drums for your body, Moeller technique, matched grip vs. traditional grip, and many other important topics. Through learning about the proper use of the body at the drum set, you will be able to learn faster, play with better facility and reduce injury.

(Percussion). Mark presents a complete system to answer these questions. The book follows a system entitled D.R.O.P.: Dynamics, Rate, Orchestration and Phrasing. Mark pulls apart and addresses each of these building blocks individually, presenting rhythmic concepts that will expand your ability to call on different rhythmic rates and subdivisions on command, move them around the kit freely, and ultimately be able to phrase them in exciting and sometimes complex ways that sound like "polyrhythms" and "metric modulations" but are actually constructed upon a solid foundation of drumming basics. This material will give you the confidence to make a personal statement on the drumset. Adding to this package is live footage of Mark playing with two of his longtime collaborators, Tim Lefebvre (bass) and Jason Lindner (keys). Having played together for years, these three musicians most recently formed the rhythm section for David Bowie's final album, Blackstar. Watch Mark interact with these world-class musicians in electric and acoustic settings as they apply Mark's concepts in inspiring performances.

The lessons in Rhythm and Drumming Demystified (R.A.D.D.) utilize a process of adapting the rudiments---and the countless variations and grooves they spawn---to the framework of five systems of common rhythmic figures, as a means to increase one's control and flexibility with any sticking or time-feel. The book also contains a groundbreaking system for using the voice to develop one's "internal clock." By using this system, drummers can improve their groove by learning to generate time with their mind and allow their body to simply be a conduit between their perception of the time and its manifestation on the drumset.
