“Amazing book by a world class player!“
This book is for anybody who wants to discover the big, wide
world of drum fills. You‘ll find plenty of fill concepts to inspire
you and enable you to understand the essential theory behind
them so you can create your own drum fills.
Step by step, Jost introduces rhythmic concepts that can
be used universally on different levels and in every musical
situation. He presents orchestration ideas, phrasings, and
exercises focusing on dynamics and accents. He shows the
different subdivisions that are essential for drum-fill playing and
fills for binary and ternary grooves such as shuffles.
Ideas on switch & path orchestration, diddle kicks, and clockwise
& counterclockwise playing will enrich your drumming, as will
step–hit–hi-hat, hand & foot rolls, cymbal chokes, stick shots,
and many more.
JOST NICKEL‘S FILL BOOK comes with an MP3 CD so
you can hear many of the recorded fills in different tempos.
Additionally, for those fills where you need to see how to
move, there are twenty videos online. A 12-page insert
containing reading texts completes the concept of this book.
