Mike Johnston Linear Drumming
Mike Johnston Mike Johnston,2010
Each page takes you through a step by step process to help you build speed and freedom around the kit. In this book, Mike takes the student through a bunch of linear patterns for the drums. The teaching technique is simple but good. The first line lists out the sticking pattern along with the note structure.
There is a very dominant pattern running through the book, as well. Asking you to get comfortable with the pattern before moving on with it. This can sometimes be a trying process, with great rewards.
Every pattern throughout the book has asked you for four limbed independence, even if it is just asking you to keep a quarter note pulse with your left foot.
