Alfred Music Publishing now distributes 'Groove Facility', a method to help create a complete vocabulary of funky and effective contemporary drumset grooves, written by Dom Famularo and Rob Hirons.
By using one-beat components arranged in a variety of sequences, 'Groove Facility' challenges drummers of any skill level to learn and play modern-sounding grooves right away. The instructional method contains clear and concise lessons together with detailed direction on motions required to execute every pattern taught in the book.
Drawing on the explanations and systems presented in 'Itís Your Move' by Dom Famularo, the authors show how to apply Moeller and free-stroke motions in a relaxed way in order to create the desired sound while grooving on the drumset.
The included disc features 22 QuickTime movie clips that clearly show the motions and groove concepts taught in the book, along with 4 original play-along tracks which are designed for applying new grooves.
'Groove Facility' book plus cd set (00-39094) is now available for $14.99 at music retail stores and at alfred.com/drums.
Appointed by Dom Famularo, Rob Hirons opened the only 'WizDom Drumshed School' in France - and the first in Europe - giving drummers in Europe a chance to learn the techniques improved by Dom Famularo without crossing the ocean.
