If you love time, you will love this book. I love time, and I'm willing to take as much as I can to learn these grooves. Every time I play Johnny Rabb's grooves I feel relaxed because of the bass drum line that he lays down. It takes the stress away. It's very clave and it's what anchors the whole thing. In Jungle drumming, Rabb takes the emphasis away from the backbeat and replaces it with syncopated snare and solid clave from the bass drum. The result, played at warp speed is jungledrum'n'bass.

Here's what I really like about Johnny's book: It covers a lot of ground that needs covering, like buzzes and rolls and seamlessly incorporates it all into rock grooves. It's methodical, follow his method, and you'll get it right. But take the time. And, these grooves flow like water and are very hypnotic once you master them. And that takes time. Which you need to love.

I took my time getting through the book, I am only now doing the chapter on Linear Jungle Grooves. There's a page of exercises I'm working on in this chapter and I swear I hear Middle eastern rhythms, African rhythms, South American rhythms, and even North American rhythms. We are talking worldbeat to rock in one half second. The linear approach to drumming is incredibly cool. I first learned about it from some of Glenn W. Meyer's books,which I also recommend. But Johnny Rabb takes linear to a whole new level. Way to go Johnny.

My advice is to practice every exercise with right hand playing cymbals, then take the extra time and switch over to every exercise with the left hand on cymbals Why take that time? It may seem like an unnecessary slog but it will really improve your bass drumming, among other things. It's the bass drum that is the key to these grooves.

This book is extremely thorough and kind of intimidating. It's probably the longest drum book I own and it can feel like a grind to get through this thing, especially without a teacher telling you which parts are really important.

It starts with exercises that any beginner could play and ends with exercises that seem completely impossible to play at D'n'B speeds. This book is not for the faint of heart, this will take A LOT of time, effort, and very deliberately paced practice [WITH A METRONOME]. Honestly, I lost interest about halfway through, but if you're really serious about learning Jungle/D'n'B drumming, this is probably the book to own.

Very good instructional book. Teaches how to immitate the jungle drum & base rhytms, usually played on drum machines, on acustic drumset. Tons of exercises.Good for every level, from beginners to advanced drummers. The attached CD's demonstrate some of the exercises, bonus electronic demos, and play along tracks.

I have barely worked in this book but the exercises are interesting and the ideas are different than what I have seen in other books. So, I would say try this book. I have worked only a few pages here and am excited about what I have worked through.

This book is great! Johnny did an excellent job of breaking down drum'n'bass beats and even explains the history if the genre. A lot of the beginning exercises are good for players of all levels and can be used to practice dynamics, timing and sight reading. Killer stuff here!

This book has much further applications than just drum-n-bass. I use this book with intermediate students to work on independence, counting, and mixing of patterns. I find this to be a much better rock/funk/etc book than the Funky Primer. Far easier to read as well.
