Alfred Announces Release of Drum Atlas Series

Alfred Publishing’s pulling out the big guns this time. With the release of their “Drum Atlas” series of books, drummers can now find a book on specific countries and the rhythms found in those countries. Seems like a pretty cool idea to me. Although… I wonder why they chose India, Brazil, Cuba, and… Salsa… Salsa’s not a country. Although I could go for some chips and salsa right now.

Alfred Publishing Releases Zeppelin and Rush Song Books

Finally! Someone has published books with drum transcriptions of big name bands and not made it dull and professorial! Alfred’s released two new song books cataloging the drum transcriptions of two rock heavyweights, Led Zeppelin and Rush. I’m interested to see how they’ve notated “Black Dog” for the breaks and “When The Levee Breaks” to see if they incoprorated the delay on the bass drum. When/if you play that particular groove, do you add in the bass drum delay on your bass drum part? Listen back to the track if you’re drawing a blank. Terrific track. Go Alfred!
