DRUMMING: First Steps - Step 11 - Appendices

The standard beginner's tuition material written and produced by drumnut Master, Steve Thornley. This is the e-book (PDF) and digital audio (mp3) version of the Appendix material.

DRUMMING: First Steps features 'easy-to-read notation', a graphical form of notation which ensures beginners don't get put off by one of the major barriers to progressing on the instrument - reading traditional music.

All the backing tracks are professionally recorded using top players and you will be guided through some of the difficulties of each style.

This is the digital version of The Appendices. Backing-tracks for all six styles in click-track and band only formats are included. The Introductory Steps 1 to 4 are also included free of charge. You can download the content up to 3 times to multiple devices by following these instructions:
