"I was very interested in learning drumming but it was awkward for me. The stick was spinning in my hand, bouncing at odd angles, and causing a lot of fatigue in my thumb muscles. I went to two different instructors and consulted a number of videos on the web. A good portion of the information was conflicting and when I tried to follow it my stroke still felt awkward.
I bought Jim’s book and since then I’ve felt the need for no other resources. Instead of one stroke he has three basic strokes. Understanding these strokes helped me to see how most of the information I’d gained in other places often applied to only one of those. I now understand the reasons for the different strokes, why they work and when to use them. I’ve found my endurance has increased and I’m able to drum more naturally. This is an incredible deal- a low price for a book that will serve as the foundation for your drumming."
