That’s pages 10-11 for those of you with the old edition– as you can see I’ve given up completely and started referring to the parts by their new edition names. I’ve been working with this section of the book a lot with my students, for rock (and another), jazz, and Latin, and have developed a few methods for my own practice for it.
These variations require just a little selective reading, and are very good for making this underused section of the book a little more interesting. I’ll outline later the exact method I’ve been using with my students; I’ve found it’s very helpful in getting them accustomed to reading figures, and manipulating some of the basic elements of ensemble playing in jazz drumming.
This is a good companion to my piece using this same section for making big band kicks/set-ups.
