DOUBLE BASS DRUM FREEDOM BY VIRGIL DONATI

BOOK/CD LEVEL: INTERMEDIATE TO ADVANCED $24.95

To provide a balanced starting point for solid double bass chops, this well-structured book by the fleet-footed forerunner of double bass exploration begins with exercises designed to help build left-foot technique to mirror the right. Advancing quickly into complex patterns for both feet, Donati combines straight and triplet feels within patterns to help develop maximum single-stroke time/feel control. The final frontier for footboard freedom involves multilavered patterns, double strokes, paradiddles, flams, and "false" (illusory) grooves. Among the multitude of written patterns, a CD of choice performance tracks is included. The ninety-four performance examples, mixed by drum legend Simon Phillips, are sonically inspiring and technically challenging. Donati's advanced concepts open the rhythmic palette to an endless world of possibilities for the inspired student. (Alfred) Mike Haid
