AJ Rousell

A work­book for get­ting cre­ative­with your drum­ming

Rhythm - - BEAT! -

Some­times we can all feel we’re play­ing kind of samey, safe in what we al­ready know, but short of new ideas to prac­tise and ap­ply. AJ Rousell’s sys­tem takes ba­sic ideas and grows them, by vary­ing and com­bin­ing them and or­ches­trat­ing them around the kit in myr­iad ways. A ta­ble of all the ex­er­cises’ pos­si­ble com­bos will help guide you through the many ideas un­til you find what works for you. And in this sense it’s quite unique, putting your progress back in your hands (as op­posed to just slav­ishly fol­low­ing a book of ex­er­cises), which will grow your vo­cab­u­lary by mak­ing you think about and ap­ply what you’re cre­at­ing.
