Deveoping Good Solid Rythem (Books ?)

Discussion in 'Technique [BG]' started by DreamJazz, Dec 8, 2002.

  1. Playing with a Metrinome I know, but do any of you know of any really good Rythem books that are just filled with different Rythmic patterns in different Time Signatures etc. Maybe oven ones that goes as i depth as Polyrythems etc.

    Please Help I'm really interested in this topic.

  3. Get a drum machine and start fiddling about. Try Leafdrums if you can't afford a physical one.
  4. Syncopation for the Modern Drummer is an EXCELLENT rhythm reading exercise book....I recommend to all.

    Should be available at any Guitar Center located near you....

    -just thought that I would throw that one in...not affiliated in any way...

    I have a few books you would maybe be interested in like the old F. Simandl books but they're for the upright and they may be a little hard to find.

    Learn some old Metallica and some Tool songs for some odd time meters.
    Justin Chancellor from Tool is such a great bassist, anyways, it's nice to learn some of his stuff.

    Rhythm is the correct spelling.
