DICK DEMERS

"My reason for putting out this book is to show you how to gain almost complete control of the drum set. There is probably no such thing as complete control; we are all dealing with certain barriers which restrict our possibilities. Control means, for example, of being able to move an offbeat from the snare to the hi-hat or the hi-hat to the ride cymbal and still be able to play the other three parts against it with a minimum of applied reading. Many times, reading itself becomes a barrier, as it becomes too difficult for many students to read four parts spontaneously in our minds - - - not simply concentrating on just the main thought - - - as three or four parts play through our subconscious. With alot of determination and work with the book, you can gain what I call almost complete control over the four moving parts. This is not to learn styles, but to learn control" . . .
