George Lawrence Stone's Stick Control is the original classic, often called the bible of drumming. In 1993, Modern Drummer magazine named it first in the top 25 drumming books of all-time. In the words of the author, this is the ideal book for improving "control, speed, flexibility, touch, rhythm, lightness, delicacy, power, endurance, preciseness of execution, and muscular coordination," with extra attention given to the development of the weak hand. This indispensable book for drummers of all types includes hundreds of basic to advanced rhythms and moves through categories of single-beat combinations, triplets, short roll combinations, flam beats, flam triplets and dotted notes, and short roll progressions.

"It truly is a timeless classic and an essential requirement for every drummer's library."
Drummer Magazine

A must have book for drummers!

I love this book!!! I got introduced to this book in college. This book really help me focus on my right to left hand while playing snare drum. I also tell my students, "If you can't play it on one drum, how will you play it on 4 or 5 drums??" I take this book out daily and run though it. Stick Control will help develop strength in each hand and help develop the hands. I also use this book to practice drumset. You must follow the stickings in the book to play everything correctly. It's laid out very easy to read, and there are some practice notes at the beginning of the book. This book is great for all levels of drummers, and it will only help develop your skills further. I would recommend this book to all of today's drummers. This is a product review by Rocky at Sam Ash Music in Indianapolis, IN at Store #57.
