Print version available!
My self-published book “Rudimental Solos for Snare Drum for the Advanced Drummer” is once again available for purchase. The book contains eight original solos for snare drum and has been expanded to include five traditional rudimental solos every snare player should know. Print version is $12.95 and the e-book is just $7.00.
New Resource Added
I’ve just added a new resource to the Care and Maintenance section. “Replacing and Tuning the Snare Head” is now available to view online or download as a PDF. It explains in detail how to remove, replace and properly tune a snare (also called bottom or resonant) head. This is a great resource for students and educators alike.
New Solo Added
I’ve just added a new, or maybe I should say old, solo to the Rudimental Solos list. “Connecticut Halftime” dates back to the Civil War and possibly even sooner. Check it out along with the other great traditional solos.
