(Percussion). Gary Chester was one of the busiest studio drummers of the '60s and '70s and played on hundreds of hit records. His systems have been used and endorsed by drummers such as Kenny Aronoff, Danny Gottlieb, and Dave Weckl. This is not just another drum book, but rather a system that will help you develop the skills needed to master today's studio requirements. By working with this book, you'll improve your reading, concentration, coordination, right and left-hand lead, and awareness of the click. This revised edition contains access to an online recording of an interview with Chester. Subscribe to the Gary Chester New Breed YouTube Channel
I have many other famous drum set books too but they aren't as practical as this one. I already knew the rudiments I wanted to learn and could learn others in my own time. This book got me comfortable with a drum set while giving me tools to use during real music making.
A perfect mix for a medium to advanced musician.
Since buying it, I have spent some time reading about Gary and his professional experiences. He is a very interesting person with some very innovative viewpoints on playing.
There is a reason why so many drumming greats have studied his material and put his teaching to use.
Like any other instuctional material, you may not agree with a particular "system". Or, you may not be at a level to make use of all of the exercises.
However, there is always something useful and this book is no exception. The best part is, if you can't use it now, put it on the shelf and pull it out later when you are ready.
