Alfred Releases The Drummer’s Guide to Fills
Alfred Publishing has just put out a new book by Pete Sweeny called Drummer’s Guide to Fills. The publisher says:
Pete Sweeney’s Drummer’s Guide to Fills is designed to expand drumming vocabulary by teaching drummers not just how to play fills, but when and where to play them. The book offers a step-by-step approach to playing fills of varying lengths, as well as different approaches to resolving fills and returning to the groove. Drummer’s Guide to Fills features fills all drummers can use to add excitement to different sections of a song and even use as the building blocks of a solo. Drummers can learn fills in many styles, from rock to funk to jazz, plus a “melodic”approach to fills that allows further embellishment on basics. The included CD accents the book by demonstrating all of the musical examples.
The book retails for $19.95. Dang .. now I need to get MY book on fills out there! 🙂
