We’re back from Easter Break with a show on unlocking the golden nuggets buried within Rick Latham’s Advanced Funk Studies Book. Show notes after the break!
Taking a page from last week’s show on drumset solos, we talk about drumset solo literature today! Rick Latham is the drummer of the week, Carter brings us a bit of news including the upcoming Rush tour, and we answer a question about practice pads.
I should note that for this review that I have neither Advanced Funk Studies nor the Contemporary Drum-Set Techniques books themselves but given the information in this DVD I will soon. Rick Latham wrote those two books over twenty-five years ago and they’ve become favorites of the drumming community over that time. At some point along the way Rick decided to supplement the books with a video for each book respectively. Fast forward to today, for the 25th anniversary of Advanced Funk Studies Rick rereleased both of the DVDs together in a single disk with a bunch of extras and it made its way to my house via Netflix… and that’s the story so far.
