This might be a far fetch but did anybody at this forum read the book "HOW TO SIGHT READ JAZZ AND OTHER SYNCOPATED TYPE RHYTHMS" by Mike Longo? Here's the link to the author's website: http://www.jazzbeat.com/html/sightreading.html I bought this book a few weeks back, read everything and found it poorly written/edited but very interesting nonetheless. In the middle of the grammar mistakes and the misspellings he makes some very good points. Really interesting stuff. But when it comes the time to apply his techniques, I'm really failing to see how is that any different than counting the traditional way. He talks a lot about additive rhythm. Instead of counting "1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &...", he tells you to count "1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8" and then gradually replace the numbers by drumming sounds such as "Ah wop bop bop did did did bop..." I wonder if I'm missing the point here. Did anybody read this book? Cheers.
