Written by Rascal Flatts’ drummer Jim Riley, this book and 2-CD kit is much more than just about styles. Great for players of all levels, it contains a number of tools to help prepare working drummers for any gig situation likely to be encountered. The two MP3 CDs include audio examples of the drum exercises in the book and fully produced play-along tracks for every groove.

Jam trax that sound like songs


I purchased the online audio version. Riley provides great examples and advice. Best of all, the play along tracks are arranged like actual, true-to-genre recordings. Riley also provides a link for charts to the recordings. Just great. I think drummers of any level can find value in this book.



A Must have Book for the gigging drummer


This book is really great, as a gigging drummer, I get called to play a lot of shows where I sit in or I get called to sit in for studio work. The Survival Guide for the Modern Drummer is a book that breaks down grooves and beats for today's working drummer. The book is easy to follow and read. There are many different styles in the book to keep up on or even learn! There is a CD with the book, and that is awesome because you can hear some of the beats back to you in context. This book will not disappoint, and should be in every drummers arsenal. I would highly recommend this book. This is a product review by Rocky at Sam Ash Music in Indianapolis, IN at Store#57.
