This book addresses the common problem of proportionally unequal abilities between a drummerís dominant and weaker muscle sets in drumming technique. The strategic exercises are designed to develop the under-used muscles to cultivate a more balanced ability for controlled movement and a fluid and consistent sound. Organized for gradual strengthening through daily practice, the exercises can be used for both hands and feet.
Using a comprehensive step-by-step set of rhythms, this 52-page book is designed to be practiced one page per week, giving an intensive one-year training session to strengthen the weaker side. The stickings and notation are designed to allow easy use by both right-handed and left-handed drummers. Broken triplet and 16th-note patterns, as well as flam patterns, are utilized in the exercises. The Weaker Side will help you take your technique to the next level!
