This book offers challenging material for the intermediate to advanced drummer. Addressing a multitude of styles, Frank Briggs helps guide your playing to a higher plane while improving your technique and raising your awareness of cutting edge concepts such as metric modulation, displaced beats, polyrhythms, and more. Frank Briggs states, "He believes the more you know about different styles and the inner workings of time and phrasing, the better your ability to contribute to the music at hand. The clearer you see the parallels or the common threads that tie these concepts together, the more freedom you will have to express yourself."

Comments about Mel Bay Complete Modern Drum Set:

Great practice book for the intermediate-level drummer that can read music and wants to improve their skills. Plenty of rudiments and cool beats that you can work into your everyday playing.

The author is a jazz drummer so, as you might expect, the focus of his book is jazz drumming. Jazz is highly technical and there is a lot of new stuff that a rock drummer like myself can learn, even if it isn't quite my style. There are also sections on blues & shuffle patterns, world beats, odd beats, and polyrhythms that almost anyone should be able to use.

If you are like me, you get tired of the same old beats and fills that you play over and over and over. This is a good book to expand your knowlege base and give you some new toys to play with.
