IF YOU'VE ALWAYS WANTED TO LEARN HOW TO PLAY THE DRUM SET, THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU! BEGINNING DRUM SET will help you learn the three basic beats most common in popular music today. The lessons that follow are the words and the visuals I would say and show a beginning drum set student. Start with the easy-to-master approach to learning the 2-4 (two-four) beat. Understand and practice the beat to perfection, and the other beats should come with time (pun intended). With the 2-4 beat mastered methodically, the popular 4-4 (four-four) beat will be easier to grasp. The graphics, video links, and step-by-step approach guide the drummer toward mastery of the basics. Playing the drum set is a skill that takes time to develop. Some quickly learn the beats; that is, some are naturals. Others learn to play just as well with concentration and practice. Either way, you are sure to find success with these lessons. Take time with each step. Be sure you have mastered each exercise before moving on. Did you know that you can learn to play drums without a drum set? By tapping your hands and feet at appropriate times, you will see that you can transfer what you learn from tapping to actually playing on a drum set. Now, "Hit it!"
