Before I was a drummer, I was a piano player. And in this book, I've gone back to my original instrument and adapted African and Afro-Cuban polyrhythms to the keyboard in a world-beat classical style. At the heart of this 96-page book are four beautiful solo pieces designed to teach a variety of rhythms and rhythmic concepts. Each piece is covered in a separate lesson, where it's broken down into bite-sized patterns that start easy and gradually get more difficult.
Although this book is for intermediate to advanced players, there's nothing here that's difficult from the standpoint of piano technique. In fact, what each hand does separately is actually pretty easy. It's the rhythms that are tricky--getting the hands to dance together in time.
But I'll be with you every step of the way, anticipating your questions and pointing out whatever I think will make your journey easier. And the audio files that come with the book contain a recording of every pattern and piece, making \"The Joy of Six\" a complete self-instruction package.
This book and the accompanying CDs and DVD are a complete, step-by-step course on conga drumming. This is the download version, so you'll get the book as a PDF, the CDs as mp3 audio files, and the DVD as a video download.
You don't need a drumset to lay down a groove. All you need is one drum. It can be a djembe, a conga, or anything else you can get both your hands on. Whether your goal is to play in a band, jam in the park, play in a church group, or just drum along with your favorite music, this book will show you how, step by step. This is the download version, which gives you the book as a PDF, the CD as mp3 audio files, and the DVD as a download.
The audio files that come with the book gives you a chance to hear how the parts for each rhythm fit together. It was recorded by Joh Camara, a master drummer from Bamako, Mali. Each rhythm lasts at least five minutes, so you'll have plenty of time to play along. And when Joh solos during the final three minutes of each track, you'll feel the thrill of playing your part along with an ensemble and lead drummer.
