A Beat a week: A total Percussion approach to playing the drumset
A Beat a Week, by Wilco drummer Glenn Kotche, contains 52 unique beats from his recorded catalog. Intended as a supplemental method, it explains the inspiration, origins, and evolution of these diverse beats with detailed text alongside each one. Taking the same concepts that embody Kotche’s playing, it promotes a total percussion approach to drumset by exhibiting a wide variety of source material ranging from rock, jazz, classical, marching, world, and electronic percussion idioms. Each beat is broken down into step-by-step examples for deeper understanding and in-depth study. This book is perfect for drummers at all levels or anyone curious about the creative process.
