Other musicians can also benefit from the contents of this text. Although percussion notation (e.g. snare drum note heads in the "c"space) is used throughout the book, any player can adapt the figures to their own instrument, e.g. interpreting the rhythms as progressions within a scale or mode.
Another aspect of this book is its suitability for all levels of players. Beginners will appreciate its "progressive" difficulty (easy to challenging) and more advanced players will see endless possibilities for rhythmic adventures.
Beginners should use this book with a competent teacher, as it is easy to imagine that there is not much going on with each example.
An excellent book for all levels. Sometimes it's forgotten that a drummers main purpose is to keep rythm, everything past there is important, but rhythm is its foundation. Reed's book is perfect to set to a metronome and solidify your internal rhythm in context with a large amount of common drum patterns I
i.e. (eighths, triplets, sixteenths, etc.)
Syncopation is an essential book to add to any drummers library. Five stars, highly recommend.
