Patterns is one of
the most comprehensive drum methods available. Covering a wide range of
materials, the books can be used in any order, or in any combination
with one another. They are a must for developing the kinds of skills
necessary for drum set performance.
In Sticking Patterns,
Gary's unique approach to the use of stickings on the set is explored.
Completely different from the rudiments, Gary's system is designed
specifically for drumset performance, both for creating time feels as
well as for filling and soloing. Also included are sections on accented
single stokes, as well as the use of double strokes on the set.
