Around the drums Max Roach-ily

More good stuff from Bang! The Drum School- a fun page of Max Roach-inspired fills. I like this kind of thing for just practicing getting around the drums- something I never actually did in isolation, until recently.

I also like single pages of exercises. We're going to have to have a talk about that soon. Too much writing either focuses on giving you 30 years worth of stuff (*KOF New Breed* ), or takes a completist attitude in which we must explore every bloody permutation of a thing, regardless of real need (*AHEM Stick Control, pp. 17-23*). I'm tired of that. Give me one thing to work on and really learn today.
