50 hours of shot footage, 2000 hours of work, more than 10 years of research. Condensed in 270 pages, 950 licks, 4 hours of video demonstrations.
When I decided to write this method my objective was to create the ultimate drum chops guide.
Any time I work on a book the idea is that I try to put together the content I wish was available when I started exploring the topic, so that I could just buy it and not have to go through all that effort.
On the other hand, some smart guy said that if you really want to master a subject then you have to write a book about it.
It’s truly amazing how much I’ve learned and I’ve improved during this process, and now I’m very excited to be able to share all of it with you. I really believe in sharing quality content and I love helping drummers reach their goals.
That’s why I offer the whole course for less than the cost of a drum lesson.
If you are interested in figuring out and mastering this area of drumming once and for all, this method is for you.
You will easily increase your speed, improve your soloing skills, learn how to express yourself in complex but fluent fills and flashy licks, develop your style, understand how to improvise.
I have organized the materials in clear and easy to study sections:
– Introduction and Theory.
– Linear Groupings.
– Rudimental Chops.
– Chops organized by Length.
– Chops organized by Subdivision.
– 100 Gospel Chops Collection.
– 50 Top Drummers Chop Collection.
– Chops Style Workout.
– Improvising with Gospel Chops and Licks.
I first of all start by explaining in detail the theory behind drum chops, a bit of history, what they are, the difference between licks, chops, fills and phrases.
Next, I go into how to make music with them, how to add your unique voice and personality, how to improvise with them and how to practice them effectively.
Then it’s time to delve into tons of examples and exercises for each of the techniques explained.
I’ve also included a brief description of all the drummers transcribed, in which I talk about their style and their approach to playing chops.
In this free excerpt I’d like to share with you 36 cool licks, so that you can start improving immediately and have lots of fun while doing so.
Among other things you are going to find chops of drummers like Dennis Chambers, Omar Hakim, Adam Deitch, Benny Greb, Aaron Spears, Tony Royster, Gerald Heyward, Matt Garstka, Larnell Lewis, Gary Novak, Terry Bozzio, Antonio Sanchez.
