My second self-published book is now available for purchase. “Quicksteps and Drum Beatings” contains 33 selections from Bruce and Emmett’s “Drummer’s and Fifer’s Guide,” first published in 1862. While its use during the Civil War was probably not common, it does offer a glimpse at the rudimental stylings of the post-Civil War late 1800’s. These arrangements are recommended for beginner to intermediate students.
Also, please note that I’ve found a less expensive printing service allowing me to lower the price from $10.95 to $7.95 for my first book, “Rudimental Solos for Snare Drum for the Advanced Drummer.”
