Combining a variety of jazz ride cymbal patterns with coordination and reading exercises, Creative Timekeeping
develops true independence: the ability to play any rhythm on the ride
cymbal while playing any rhythm on the snare and bass drums. It provides
a variety of jazz ride cymbal patterns as well as coordination and
reading exercises that can be played along with them. Five chapters:
Ride Cymbal Patterns; Coordination Patterns and Reading; Combination
Patterns and Reading; Applications; and Cymbal Reading.
