I had studied under a big band great in Western NY for some time and one item that was not in the book he threw at me was as follows:
You have the regular "Cook Book" beat-right? click the Hi-Hat off-8th note and 16s on the ride. Now break the 16th note ride rhythm into cut-time bebop "ding-dalla-dings" against the straight four pattern of the book! Hahaha! Awesome isn't it? You will free hand and foot coordination to play any thing up-tempo and be-bop.
Use a metronone with an earplug...or you can get free phone/tablet apps via Amazon for Droid.
Remember...two notes on top of each other means "at the very same time" and not "kinda-sorta."
Also recommend the Carmine Appice books for "Realistic Rock" and Double Bass Drum.
The Ultimate Realistic Rock Drum Method
ENJOY! It will make a mark improvement in a short time.
While I definitely recommend this book as an excellent volume, I suggest Jim Payne's Funk Drumming book as a precursor. It will take you to where this book really begins.
Also, this volume is NOT set up anything like Pickering's Studio Jazz book (which I also own and highly endorse). So if you already own that volume, expect a very different approach from this one.
Once you know a rhythm and can make variations on it, it becomes yours in a way that most music instruction books miss with their examples.
