STICK TECHNIQUE - by Jim McCarthyNEW in 2007 - 2nd EDITION!
Stick Technique by Jim McCarthy is completely unique and an essential book for all percussionists and drummers as it contains not a bunch of exercises and beats like most books, but exactly what the title implies - a wealth of information on stick technique. The actual nuts and bolts of how the human hand works and the physics of a stick, has been explained in the simple terms that Jim has developed over several years of teaching young students. This will benefit all drummers from the very advanced to the beginner, and from the orchestral percussionist to the serious rudimentalist. The content is detailed and completely thorough, and well laid out with loads of stunning photographs and diagrams. To use a quote from the author "This is the book I wish I had when I was learning!".
