CD audio examples peformed by Joe Bergamini
In this book, rock drum legend Carmine Appice shows you how to play exciting drum fills like the pros, using a systematic method of replacing certain notes in the 16th or triplet flow with bass drum strokes. By using this book you can learn how to incorporate your bass drum into your fills, creating a complete vocabulary of cool ideas to use in your playing
Using the same award-winning approach as Realistic Rock, the patterns contained in the book start with 8th notes and progress to 16th notes and triplets, with the rhythms split between the hands and feet. The fills are then expanded to include mixed stickings and accents, and are orchestrated around the kit.
The included MP3 disc contains audio examples of many of the patterns in the book performed by Joe, as well as video footage of Carmine in live performance, showing how he applies these concepts. Realistic Drum Fills will give you the ability to play tons of cool drum fills that rock!
