Right now I'm working on a couple of very wordy pieces, and since I view words primarily as vectors for self-embarrassment, it's taking me a long time to finish them. In the mean time, you should check out these posts:
Jon McCaslin has for us several pages from a 1992ish clinic by Shaughnessy. At the left is his handout with his a unique explanation for his unique way of playing the ride cymbal. You sense with these that you're missing a good deal, absent his verbal explanation, but that's OK; I'm in favor of working with partial information.
